From Library Staff

"The 3,000-year-old Sanskrit epic poem Ramayana, which provides role models for both boys and girls in India, is interpreted here with gorgeous, vibrant illustrations in the style of Patua scroll paintings that are often oriented on the page in comic-book-like arrangements." Booklist

The story is told from a female-character's perspective, but hardly a feminist story. The illustrations are colourful, but static and childish. The book is considered "juvenile fiction" by LAC CIP, why the OPL categorizes it as adult is beyond me.

The images are beautiful. I'm not used to reading graphic novels and found it confusing on occasion
