Summary of the Book
This collection brings young readers five titles from Amar Chitra Katha. The included titles are: Monkey Stories, Deer Stories, Elephant Stories, Bird Stories and Jackal Stories. The Jatakas are a collection of stories which showcase the previous lives of the Buddha. These stories impart wisdom in a wide variety of topics, teaching children the morals of life through simple scenarios involving animals. In Monkey Stories, these seemingly simple creatures manage to outwit the most cunning of kings and the most cruel crocodiles. Each of these creatures portrays a certain attribute usually associated with humans. Through their actions and troubles, the Buddha shows that there is much to be learnt from the creatures around us.
