Sizing guide
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.
