More than 100 years ago, Dakshinaranjan Mitra Majumdar collected folktales from across Bengal and rendered them into a unique collection of children’s fiction, titled Thakumar Jhuli. Enjoyed by children over the ages, the anthology became synonymous with the cultural heritage of the region.


This translation, Princesses, Monsters and Magical Creatures promises to take readers to an enchanting land sprinkled with flying horses, speaking birds, cunning foxes, indestructible monsters, bold princes, and even bolder, beautiful princesses. To sail on a grand peacock boat holding Black Serpent’s diamond with a friendly midget who is only a finger and half tall is exactly the stuff that dreams are made of.


So, are you ready to step into this fantastic book and fly to the Moon Lady to watch her magic work on you?
