Near a majestic mountain in a vast jungle with many mango trees, it has not rained for weeks and weeks. The village well and pond are dry.

So he sets out to see if the story is true... This little-known legend, told with dramatic rhythm and illustrated with the colors and textures of India, is sure to delight and inspire.
