Princess Kalabati and Other Tales contains twelve tales from Bangladesh, including the well-known story of ‘Princess Kalabati and the Monkey Prince’ as well as lesser known folk tales. Despite the fabulous nature of these tales in which animals talk and birds fly up to heaven, queens give birth to monkeys and owls, and half-chickens find pots of gold, these stories provide realistic details of life in rural Bangladesh. Some of these tales have roots in the Panchatantra, some have similarities with Assamese folk tales. Still others have motifs common to well-known fairy tales the world over.

Attractively illustrated by Shamarukh Mohiuddin, these tales will delight the young while providing a glimpse into the cultural heritage of Bangladesh.

Niaz Zaman is Associate Professor, Department of English, University of Dhaka. Her interest ranges from literature to folk life. An earlier edition of Princess Kalabati and Other Tales was published by the Bangla Academy in 1985 as Animal Tales from Bangladesh. She is co-editing with Ashraf Siddiqui Tales from Bangladesh (forthcoming UPL). She has also published The Art of Kantha Embroidery (UPL).
