    Tall Tales of Vishnu Sharma Panchatantra (2008) 1

    by Basu & Padlekar Some old stories never lose their bite... Something's invading the stories of our childhood, leaving death and oblivion in its wake. Now, a motley crew of animal heroes from ancient Indian fables must unite to survive. But first they must find the boy destined to save them, the chosen guardian of the Panchatantra. Thing is... he has no idea they even exist. Vishnu Sharma, would be boy-hero, is too busy playing in online tournaments to care about fighting storybook wars. But when a none-too-fictional talking lion, monkey and bull arrive at his doorstep, Vishnu must choose between protecting the tales of the Panchatantra, or silently standing by as they disappear into storybook history. With naughty boy wizards, cuddly anime-sociopaths, and a not-so-frightful King of the Jungle, this ain't your Mother Goose's story. Cover price $2.99.

    Tall Tales of Vishnu Sharma Panchatantra (2008) 2

    by Samit Basu & Ashish Padlekar Some old stories never lose their bite. The tales of Vishnu Sharma have barely begun and already he's been kidnapped by talking animals, had a near-death experience with a homicidal boy wizard, and now he's expected to walk INTO a book called the Panchatantra, the ancient collection of Indian fables of which Vishnu is supposedly the guardian. If that weren't enough, when Vishnu is pulled inside the pages of folklore and fantasy, death and oblivion seem all too real. This fairytale is more like a nightmare, where 'THE END' is something he desperately wants to avoid. Cover price $2.99.
