About the Author
Praise For The Magical Adventures of Krishna: How a Mischief Maker Saved the World…
"I was so pleased to discover recently that the publishing house, Inner Traditions, has a division called Bear Cub Books, which features children's storybooks including classic Indian stories for children. Each culture throughout history shares myths, parables, and folklore, in order to teach children about morals and the human condition and the Hindu traditions and stories are both fascinating and delightful to read. . . . Beautifully written by Dr. Sperling, she does a wonderful job of explaining the characters, so that they can be easily loved and understood by western children as an introduction to Hindu culture and traditions."
-Kala Ambrose, Metaphysical Spirituality Examiner, March 2010
"The seventh title in the outstanding 'Classical Indian Stories for Children' series . . . keeps its readers enthralled with all of the rollicking exploits of its human, divine, and demonic cast of characters."
-The Midwest Book Review, Feb 2010
"Krishna's birth and His exploits in killing the many demons that were sent by His uncle Kamsa to kill Him are narrated well by Vatsala. Her style is simple and at the same time she holds the reader's attention. The illustrations by Pieter Weltevrede add great value to the excellent narration. The result is an excellent introduction to Krishna Tatva and Krishna Consciousness to those not yet exposed. To others, it would be one more opportunity to enjoy the nectar of Krishna's love for the whole creation."

“Highly recommended for ages 6 and older, and anyone interested in world cultures.”
