Synopsis

The Fantastic Adventures of Krishna by Demi

Hidden amongst the poor cowherds, Krishna uses his miraculous powers to fight an evil demon king who has overthrown the peaceful kingdom of Mathura.

Reviews

Author/illustrator Demi (The Conference of the Birds) retells the tale of how Lord Vishnu, the greatest of all the gods, came to Earth as a child, Krishna, in order to destroy all the evil demon kings and bring peace once again to the Earth. The stories begin with his astounding escape as an infant from evil King Kamsa's prison and his adoption into a cowherd family, then continue with tales of Krishna's naughty childhood (stealing butter), phenomenal strength (lifting a mountain with his finger), and miraculous powers (swallowing a forest fire's flames). Each spread contains centered paintings framed by finely detailed, colorful, and ornate borders set against a pale beige backdrop. Text appears low on each page

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
