Along with his beautiful wife Sita and his loyal brother Lakshaman. Rama triumphed over the demons that dwelled there and tried to live a quiet, simple life among the forest animals.

One of the most honored stories of the Hindi people, this tale has been told for thousands of years. Illustrated now with bright, bold artwork, based upon Indian paintings and adapted form Jessica Souhami's own shadow puppets, it will once again spellbind a new generation of young listeners and readers.
