Synopsis

Ganesha's Sweet Tooth by Emily Haynes

The bold, bright colours of India leap off the page in this fresh and funny picture book retelling of how Ganesha comes to write the epic poem of Hindu literature, the Mahabharata. Ganesha is just like any other kid, except that he has the head of an elephant and rides around on a magical mouse. An he loves sweets, especially the traditional dessert laddoo. But when Ganesha insists on biting into a super jumbo jawbreaker laddoo, his tusk breaks off! Ganesha is terribly upset, but with the help of the wise poet Vyasa, he learns that what seems broken can actually be quite useful after all. With vibrant, graphic illustrations, expressive characters and off beat-humour this is a wonderfully inventive twist on a classic tale.
