Timeless fables - now in a classic collector's edition. Composed in Sanskrit around 300 CE, the Panchatantra is one of the oldest collections of fables in the world. It is not only a masterly treatise on politics and government, and a manual for conducting our daily lives with wisdom and common sense, but devised to educate the three dull-witted sons of a king in the ways of the world, it was also a revolutionary and successful experiment in teaching young people. This complete and vibrant translation brings to you the full breadth of the ancient work. While each story unravels into several more, a motley group of creatures educate and entertain in crisp rhymes and delightful prose.
