About the Author:

adapted by Gita Wolf and illustrated by Indrapramit Roy

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2. In this folktale from India, Singam the lion is hungry, but too lazy to hunt for food. He decides to go to the village market, scare off the people, and eat a goat. On the way, he meets a sparrow and plans to eat her instead, but the clever bird sends him off to collect the ingredients for rice cakes. The lion walks all the way to the village, where the people run away and won't help him get his supplies. He soon discovers a lamb, tied up and ready to eat, but this animal also escapes. By now the village people have gathered their courage and frighten the beast back to the forest where he is again tricked, this time by a clever deer. Hungry and tired, Singam decides to try hunting the next day. While children will enjoy the plight of the foolish lion as he tries to find some food, the real strength of this book is in the traditional illustrations. Using the Warli style of Indian folk painting, Roy creates stylized, pictographic images, screened on paper made from rice husks and cotton, that have a lively charm and energy. A fine addition to folktale collections, with illustrations that could inspire young printmakers.?Anne Connor, Los Angeles Public Library
