More funny, clever trickster tales from India.
Prince Veera's great-uncle, Raja Apoorva, invites the prince and his best friend, Suku, to the summer festival in Peetalpur, where they participate in some of the competitions. Can they make the peahen sing, though peahens can't sing? Or win the painting competition, or even defeat the country's champion wrestler? The boys face each challenge with great wit and wisdom. Back at the palace, they are faced with more challenges. Raja Apoorva enjoys puzzles and presents several to the boys: who was the intruder who dared to pull the Raja's beard? How can the journey to the seaside be shortened? And at court it's Prince Veera and Suku who will decide which neighbour owns the tree that produces the wonderful figs for the palace, as well as solve the mysteries of the holy man and the astronomer.

Four stories packed with clever and amusing tricks and puzzles which will delight children from 6 to 8 - and well beyond.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A Sliver of Moon and a Shard of Truth by Chitra Soundar is a lyrical collection of stories from Indian folklore. Simply and warmly told, the narrative follows Prince Veera and his friend as they find themselves thrown into mishap at a summer festival. * The Daily Telegraph *
The black & white illustrations scattered through on page after page add charm and authenticity, while the stories themselves sing with drama (in the best way), surprise and wisdom. Entertaining, genuine, and utterly wonderful. This book is a little treasure. * Fallen Star Stories *
