Corebooks

Four interlinked stories from India about Prince Veera and his friend Suku who help out the prince’s father King Bheema by sometimes substituting for him when he holds court to resolve the problems of his people. They do this with humour and intelligence. These stories bear a strong relationship to other trickster tales such as those about Nasreddin Hodja.

There are four more stories about Prince Veera and Suku in: A Jar of Pickles and a Pinch of Justice (9781406364675), Walker £6.99
