Synopsis

Krishna and the Mystery of the Stolen Calves by Joshua M. Greene, Dominique Amendola

When powerful god Brahma tries to outsmart the village children of Vrindavan, he learns a lesson he won t soon forget: there is magic in friendship. From the ancient texts of India called the Puranas comes this universal tale of childhood bonds. The Puranas contain hundreds of stories, many dedicated to Krishna, honored by Hindus worldwide as divinity in personal form. Whether one views Krishna as a transcendent figure or a magical cowherd boy, his stories captivate young readers. His love of nature and his dedication to family and friends have made him a hero for all ages.
