The old snake is punished – frogs will now ride on him. The frogs jump for joy – but they had better watch out!

Unusual styles

The illustrations in each tale are inspired by a particular folk art/ craft. While Gond, Pithora, Madhubani, Patachitra are the usual folk styles one sees explored, the Kalamkari and the Chennapatna toys' styles were new and interesting additions. Saffron Tree
