‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
Old Animals Forest Band (The)
by Sirish Rao
Age Range: Under_5
This lively and witty story is the much-loved Indian version of a Grimm Brothers folktale. Four old animals – a sleepy dog, an unmilkable cow, a weak-kneed donkey and a confused cockerel – become firm friends after their owners discard them for being too old and no longer of use. Joining forces, the four friends prove themselves to be anything but useless!
These charming characters come to life in Durga Bai’s evocative and quirky Gond illustrations. This is a poignant, yet subtle fable about friendship, old age and tolerance. Another beautifully crafted book produced by Tara Publishing.
