Elephant Prince: The Story of Ganesh
Elephant-headed and big-bellied, mischievous and sweet, the god Ganesh has one of the most familiar faces in the world. But how did he get the head of an elephant? Set in the Himalayas in a time of gods and goddesses, Elephant Prince tells the story of a remarkable bond between a mother and her son, a remorseful god, a generous elephant, and the boy who became Ganesh. This wonderful story is accompanied with jewel-tone illustrations reminiscent of classical Indian miniatures.
