Animals and birds have been our precursors on this earth. Since all creatures have their own unique appearance, man has often wondered about the infinite variety in shape,colour and form among living creatures.

Down the ages he wove imaginative stories to explain this baffling variety--and these subsequently passed into the folklore throughout the world.

Myths have been woven around-

*How the tiger acquired stripes

*How the crocodile got its rough, scaly back

*Why the dog barks at everyone it encounters

Such myths are now part of our folklore.

The tales in this book come from all corners of the globe   North America, Africa, Europe, Australia, South-east Asia and our own beautiful land India and bring us glimpses of faraway lands and stange creatures.
