" Ms. Sheth delivered on her promise when she eloquently penned her unique version of this timeless treasure adapted form the scriptural teaching of ancient India. She brings all of the glorious personalities of this story to life in a way that is sure to keep youngsters reading this captivating classic again and again. The author's words are only enhanced by the enchanting artwork of her mother, Anna Johansson. I highly recommend this book as a part of every family's home library.

The Ramayana has been on of the most widely spread and popular works of literature in the world. Its translation into numerous languages both within and beyond India and its adaptation to different cultures has endeared it to countless people, young and old. Prince Rama, Son of the Solar Dynasty, as a modern adaptation for young people, is lovingly written by Vrinda Devi Sheth and illustrated by her mother Anna, in a way that invites all to enter deeply into the spirit of the drama that propels the story forward and makes it part of our collective memory. Even those familiar with the Ramayana will experience it in a new light, as Vrinda offers plausible details to enhance the ancient narrative and Anna's illustrations bring to new life the characters of Rama and His associates. While reading it, I wished that such a book had been available to me when growing up, and now that Prince Rama is available, I can enthusiastically recommend it to all Ramayana enthusiasts, either existing or in the making (this book will certainly make one a Ramayana enthusiast if not so already).
