About five hundred years ago, there lived a great king called Krishnadevaraya. He ruled one of the greatest kingdoms in south India, the Vijayanagar kingdom. There were eight poets in his kingdom named “Ashtadiggajas”. One of the poet in ashtadiggajas was “Tenali Ramakrishna”. Tenali Ramakrishna was famous all over the world for his wit and spontaneity.

This book contains 63 stories from Tenali Ramakrishna’s life. It was a fun read for my 6 year old.
