Book Overview
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. The Little Book of Hindu Deities is 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.-- USA Today
