The Littlest Giant : The Story of Vamana
by Joshua M. Greene




Overview -
An illustrated modern adaptation of the beloved Indian classic "Ten Avatars."

King Bali is not a bad soul; he's just ambitious. He wants big things As a consequence, he doesn't have friends. What he does have is an evil adviser named Shukra, who is even more ambitious than the king. When King Bali is visited by a tiny sage, Shukra is suspicious and warns the king to stay away. In this retelling of an ancient story from the Sanskrit histories, King Bali learns that big things can come in small packages -- and that sometimes a small courtesy can bring big rewards. Illustrator Emma Moore applies luminescent colors and dynamic perspectives to her visualization of this tale of big and little, adapted from India's beloved "Ten Avatars." Author Joshua M. Greene's elegant and direct storytelling renders an otherwise esoteric subject accessible and relevant for contemporary young readers.
