Lore of the Land - Storytelling Traditions of IndiaInto the land of stories . . .
Moody Mohini belongs to a legendary family of storytellers. Telling tall tales is supposed to be in her genes. Except, she doesn't think so-even though her family (as well as just about everyone in Mithika) expects her to be the torchbearer of this rather marvellous tradition.
One day, cracking under the pressure of a plotline, Mohini runs far away from home . . . only to be held hostage by a spunky spirit, who traps her in a strange spell and whisks her off on a whirlwind tour of the country and its many storytelling traditions. And how else can Mohini break the charm-you guessed it-but by telling a story herself!
Join Mohini as she receives a unique education about the untold ways in which the people of India weave tales-using everything from stick figures and cave paintings to shadow puppets and flamboyant dance dramas-all the while discovering the profound powers of that special skill-storytelling.
