One of the oldest and greatest epics in the world, the Mahabharata has been retold innumerable times over the ages. The latest version is ‘The Mahabharata: Illustrated Classics for Children’, a brightly illustrated series of ten books that unravel the epic with simplicity, bringing to a young reader a glimpse of the famous epic without losing any of its essences, magic, and power. The simplified and engaging narrative has been retold by Charu Agarwal Dhandia, keeping in mind the sensibilities of a child.
