Overview: Tales of Humour: 5 in 1

Tales of Humour is a collection of stories written by Anant Pai and filled with humour, wit and subtle social message. The aim of these stories is to get the young ones acquainted with Indian folk tales and mythological characters. They also serve as the perfect bedtime tales, and can be read by the children themselves.

In Birbal the Just, the kids learn the story of Birbal, the wisest of all the nine jewels in Akbar's court and also the most loved by the king. His dedication to do what is right makes him use his smart words to get the truth out, with style. In Raman of Tenali, the legendary Tenali Raman comes alive with beautiful illustrations. A jester in King Krishnadevaraya's court, Tenali Raman's sharp tongue-in-cheek style humour delivers uninhibited laughs, but not without sowing seeds of understanding and equality. Other stories in the book are Birbal the Witty, Gopal the Jester and Raman the Matchless Wit.

Rightfully referred to as the Father of Indian Comics, Anant Pai pioneered the comic book era in India, enabling many to read something, which was closer to home and less westernised. He founded Amar Chitra Katha to use comics as a medium to reach out to children and educate them without taking out any of the fun. Children all over India love his Tinkle comics, which have stunning illustrations complemented by funny dialogues and quirky characters. His demise in February 2011 was a shock to many, but his legacy continues till date.

Though meant for children between nine to fourteen years of age; this comic book can also read by adults, who grew up reading Amar Chitra Katha, a relive the precious memories of childhood. Comprising of 160 pages and published by Amar Chitra Katha Private Limited, this comic book has a timeless appeal.
