Tales as old as time, retold
for readers, both young and old

Collected from storytellers on snow-capped mountains, and in eerie forests, opulent palaces and countries near and far, the captivating folk tales in this book have mesmerized generations.

Injected with freshness, mystery, adventure and magic, Geeta Ramanujam retells her all-time favourite stories with a song here and a twist there.

Travel along with this imaginative storyteller as she shares peculiar myths and incredible trivia from around the world in this magnificently illustrated volume of twenty tales from Russia, Japan, France, Tibet, India, Korea, Scotland and more.

Tales from the World (2022) is an excellent resource for readers who want to take baby steps on the journey to using storytelling for societal change.There is mythology, folklore, magic, mystery and adventure in the stories coupled with memorable characters and trivia that will keep young children glued and enthralled.As opposed to a book of folktales from a particular region, Geeta Ramanujam has shared a plethora of experiences from a wide array of cultures in one book. Her small introduction to each story helps to give a perspective to the reader, and the trivia box at the end sheds further light on the topic.We All Celebrate! takes us on a journey of carnivals, festivals and some very interesting, otherwise lesser known celebrations from all over the globe with beautiful illustrations to go with it.
