Description - The Little Book Of Hindu Deities: From The Goddess Of Wealth ToThe Sacred Cow, by Sanjay Patel

Pixar animator and Academy Award-nominated director Sanjay Patel (Sanjay's Super Team) brings to life Hinduism's most important gods and goddesses (and one sacred stone) in fun, full-color illustrations, each accompanied by a short, lively profile.a The Little Book of Hindu Deitiesais chock-full of monsters, demons, noble warriors, and divine divas. Find out why Ganesha has an elephant's head (his father cut his off!); why Kali, the goddess of time, is known as the 'Black One' (she's a bit goth); and what 'Hare Krishna' really means. 'Throw another ingredient in the American spirituality blender. Pop culture is veering into Hinduism.'aUSA Today 'Don't mess with Kali, cautions Patel on the opening page of this arresting, innovative, entertaining book. Who knew the Hindu pantheon could be so much fun? Patel, an animator at Pixar studios, breathes new life into old mythology, telling the exploits of various deities while drawing us in-literally-with his joyous and unexpected full-color illustrations. In the introduction, he notes that he has always been influenced by Japanese animation, and his renderings bear the mark of the wide-eyed, large-headed, simple style that he so admires. The book is awash in color, with vivid saffrons, purples, fuchsias and oranges adding a lushness to the tales he recounts . . . Both funny and informative, this is a fresh and breezy introduction to the Hindu gods.'aPublishers Weekly
