Summary "The tales of Kalila and Dimna, also known as The Panchatantra, Kalila wa Dimna and The Fables of Bidpai, originated around two thousand years ago. These charming and humorous stories about animals have since found their way, in one form or another, into the folklore of every major culture and tradition." "What links the fables is the core message about managing power, wise leadership and the value of true friendship." "In his retelling of Kalila and Dimna, Ramsay Wood deftly knits several oral storytelling traditions into a captivating literary style. This version from all major ancient texts is the first new compendium in English since 1570. Young and old alike will treasure these beautifully illustrated tales."--Book jacket.
