Review: The Bird with Golden Wings
Sudha Murty is one writer whose understanding of Indian upbringing style, values and ethos is incredible. This book is yet again another gem from her and will definitely make children ask for more and more. It has 21 short stories about magical creatures, Kings and ordinary men who sometimes make one laugh and at other times give a lesson on basic human values of being kind and good at heart. It has stories about a poor girl who was rewarded by a golden bird for her kindness and about a fisher woman who had to pay the price for being too greedy. On one hand you will laugh reading about King Parikshit who had donkey ears and on the other hand wonder how Manjunath will teach his son Anil a lesson in wisdom. All in all, each story is a fun read and leaves the reader with a message on wisdom and values in life. With over 50, copies sold this is a must have for year olds.
