Radhika Sekar’s book is an enchanting exploration of the life of the god of all beginnings, Ganesha. The collection of stories should answer the questions that trouble every curious child. How did Ganesha get an elephant’s head? Why is his right tusk broken? How did Mushaka, the little mouse, become the portly god’s chariot? And who is Ganesha’s wife? Written in a style that is deliberately shorn of all violent terminology, these gentle tales will appeal to every child.
