Twenty-three lively stories about the lovable elephant-headed god.

Ganesha has an elephant’s head, a pot belly and a rollicking sense of fun. Full of mischief, he fools around with gods and humans alike. He is also wise and shrewd, gentle and compassionate.

These tales of Lord Ganesha include old mythological favourites, like the stories about his birth and how he got his elephant head. Alongside are little-known tales dug up from ancient texts-how Ganesha created the table, how he stopped Ravana from becoming all-powerful, how he won a race around the world without moving an inch, and how he swallowed Vishnu, Brahma and Lakshmi in one big gulp! Each illustrated tale is told with sparkling wit-to match that of the boisterous god.
