In this story, similar to that of Noah's Ark, Manu saves humanity from a giant flood. Using this book in the classroom or at home would be a great way to encourage multiculturalism.

This is an interesting story, that has some symbolisim with the story Noah's Ark, but in Hindu Mythology. The pictures are colorful and it is a good read. ( )

Manu is a prince living in India who is curious about the many wonders of the world. One day, as he sits by the river thinking, he hears a voice calling for help. He rescues a little fish from getting eaten by a bigger fish. In return for the rescue, the little fish promises to tell the future one day, if Manu can keep him alive. Manu is able to keep the fish alive and growing, and one day the fish asks to be returned to the river. Before swimming away, he tells Manu that a great flood with wash everything on the earth away, and that he had better build a boat big enough to hold his family, plants, and a bunch of animals. Manu does as the fish tells him, and he and his family are saved from the flood. After floating around for some time, the fish shows up and pulls Manu's boat to safety. Manu is able to rebuild the earth, and lives to be an old man. And every once in awhile, you would see him sitting by the river, listening.

This is an interesting folktale in that it blends Indian culture, the story of the talking fish, and the Ark story. Children might be a little confused as the storyline meanders and never repeats itself like a standard folktale, but they will enjoy recognizing parts of the story they may have heard in other tales. The brightly colored illustrations enhance the story, although they do not have traditional Indian motifs, which would have been beautiful. Still, kids will like the bright colors and easy to read text.

I found it interesting that in the eurocentric stories, the fish represented greed and wanting what you can't have, while in the non Western folktales, the fish represnted wisdom and sustenance. I would be curious to learn more about that dichotomy.

For ages 6 - 9. ( )
