This set of 2 illustrated books narrates the epics of Ramayana and Panchatantra in an easy to understand language for young children.

The Sage Valmiki was the author of this long classic poem, the first of its kind in Sanskrit literature. Some historians that he lived in the second century B.C. His early life is said to have been worldly, perhaps wicked. But, with enlightenment, he turned to a life of meditation. Legend has it that it was by divine inspiration that he set down for posterity the story of Rama, the ideal king.

As in all epics, the story is built round a core of historical truth. The civic, ethical and philosophical values of ancient Indian civilization are expressed in imaginative verse. To this day, it has retained its universal appeal and a unique hold on the people of India.

Rama has been accepted as an incarnation of the Supreme Being. Only his divinity can explain many of the miracles in the story. But Valmiki treats him essentially as a man and a prince.
