Based on the author’s six years of research into the folklore wisdom of the ancient Pantacantra texts, which was first published in the Pahlavi language between 531 AD and 579 AD, emerges this new version set in an modern context. This simple, poetic story about a Mouse, Crow, Tortoise and Deer is about learning the wisdom of the world and, in the author’s own words, “answers a lot of questions in a very scientific and simple and delightful way”.
‘A rainbow is not a colourful frown but nature’s smile upside down!’
‘What will be will be,
What will not be, will never be,
The things your hand grasp will slip, If Destiny has agreed to it.’
