The World’s Funniest Folktales
The World’s Funniest Folktales
Description
Back of the Book

A hilarious collection of folktales, guaranteed to leave you in stitches!

Meet Lars, who ends up hanging from the fireplace when he tries to keep house one day; Erik, whose wife is incapable of keeping a secret; Dala Tarwadi, the world’s laziest man with a fondness for brinjal curry and a host of other memorable characters in this collection.

Rajee Raman’s deft retelling gives a contemporary flavour to the traditional tales from eleven countries.

Preface

Who doesn’t enjoy a good story? Tales of dashing adventurers and cunning magicians; of wise men and their battles of wit; of knotty problems and their ingenious solutions…Stories are not merely entertainment, but a reflection of one’s culture and society. They are also a window to a magical land of imagination.

Some stories are timeless. The earliest stories date back to a time before the advent of the written word. These stories have survived the test of time to this day. They are fascinating examples of all that is universal in human nature, of values that transcend the boundaries of time and space. They continue to fascinate the children of today, as they have done children of other times and countries.

In this book, I have attempted to put together a collection of classic folktales from various cultures, which embody the wit and wisdom of the ages.
