Rama and the Demon King: An Ancient Tale from India. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: The three thousand year-old tale of Rama, who rescues his wife, Sita, from the Demon King, is said to confer a blessing on all who hear it.
In Rama and the Demon King, this glorious Hindu myth is retold, so that children of all cultures can enjoy the thrilling story.
The vibrant illustrations, based on the ancient tradition of shadow-puppetry, convey all the exuberance of a tale which, although centuries old is still very much alive.
About the Author: Jessica Souhami studied at the Central School of Art and Design. In 1980 she formed Mme Souhami and Co, a travelling puppet company using colourful shadow puppets with a musical accompaniment and a storyteller.
