Grandma and the Great Gourd: A Bengali Folktale

Illustrated by: Susy Waters
Age Level: 3-6

An old woman left her small village to visit her daughter and granddaughter, telling three hungry predators to wait to eat her until she is plumped up on her way back. How the women outwit the bear, fox and tiger is satisfyingly told and handsomely illustrated in saturated color illustrations in this Indian folktale that the author recalls from her childhood.
