Cérbh é Birbal? Amadán cliste ba ea é agus cé gur mhair sé fadó tá siad fós ag caint air – ón Daingean go Darjeeling. Scéilíní gleoite faoi ainmhithe, faoi éin agus faoi dhaoine. Scéilíní a ghealfaidh do chroí agus iad maisithe go haoibhinn ag Bob Ó Cathail.

Who was Birbal? He was a clever fool, according to some, and although he lived a long long time ago, they’re still talking about him, from Dingle to Darjeeling! Rosenstock previously delighted readers of Irish with retellings of tales concerning the holy fool Nasrudin. In this new book we encounter the loveable antics and sayings of the eponymous Birbal, one of the nine advisors of the 16th century Mughal emperor Akbar. A wonderful collection of beautiful traditional stories and proverbs from Indian folklore. Adapted from such sources as the Hitopadesha, Panchatantra and Jataka, the stories in this book are about all of life, with stories about animals, about birds and about people. Stories to lift the spirit, delightfully illustrated by Bob Ó Cathail.
