dc.description.abstractThis book presents a story made of three fables. The hungry lion leaves behind his first catch, a sparrow, who claims that he is about to make rice cakes and suggests that the lion let him make the cakes. Then the lion can eat the sparrow with the cakes. Off the lion goes to market for the cakes' ingredients--sugar, bananas, milk, and butter--along with pots, pans, and firewood. He tries unsuccessfully to take a train. At the market he finds a lamb and is about to eat him, when the lamb says that the lion's subjects will object to his eating lamb raw. He needs to light a fire and roast the lamb. The lion tries unsuccessfully to take a bus to the village to get what he needs for a fire. The villagers, who had run from him at the market, attack him and drive him off. At home, he finds a deer, who says he has been waiting for him all day with a message another lion wrote on his hoof…. Delightful bright art work adapted from Warli folk painting from western India and silk-screened onto paper of rice husks and cotton fibres. Originally published, apparently in 1995, by Tara Publishing in Madras. A lovely book!en_US
