The tales of "Kalila and Dimna", also known as "The Panchatantra", "Kalila wa Dimna" and "The Fables of Bidpai" originated in India almost two thousand years ago. These charming and humorous stories about animals have since found their way, in one form or another, into the folklore of every major culture and tradition. What links the fables is the core message about managing power, wise leadership and the value of true friendship. In his retelling of this world classic, Ramsay Wood deftly knits several oral storytelling traditions into a contemporary and captivating style. This version from all major ancient texts is the first new compendium in English since 1570. Young and old alike will treasure these beautifully illustrated tales.
