Overview

Prince in Exile is the first in a three volume translation of India’s literary masterpiece – Ramayana. There are many versions of this classic written for adults, but very few exist that have so carefully retold the spellbinding epic of Lord Rama along with its universal moral and spiritual lessons in such an attractive manner for children.

This set, Prince Rama, Son of the Solar Dynasty, is not only a feast for the eyes, but also for the ears and heart. An exceptionally talented mother and daughter team have created one of the most beautiful children’s Ramayana ever published. Children of all ages will be fascinated by Annapurna’s delightful illustrations and Vrinda’s mesmerizing narration.

Editorial Reviews

Joshua M. Greene
For young readers, here is an ideal introduction to Valmiki’s classic tale
of good and evil. There are dozens of Ramayanas, but the graphic
narrative and engaging illustrations lift this edition of India’s beloved
epic to the top of the pile. Highly recommended.

WitWith riveting language, dramatic flair, and deep psychological insight,Vrinda weaves her splendid tale, which is beautifully illustrated by the able artistic hand of her devoted mother, who inspired her daughter’s work. Veteran Ramayana readers, curious neophytes and everyone in between will be delighted and thrilled by this amazing work.
