Like all Bhakti’s previous book the book starts with a slokha for Hanuman. The book contains beautiful illustrations by Maulshree Somani, the illustrations make the book so interesting and imaginative. I dont want to share the story with all of you as you need to see the book to know whats its all about.
The “Amma, tell me about” series is the perfect set of books to introduce kids to Indian mythology and let them understand our heritage and teachings from our epics. The stories build faith and trust in kids. The complex stories have been simplified so well and Bhakti has been able bring out the essence in these stories so well.

Book Synopsis – Amma, tell me about Hanuman’s Adventures in Lanka
Here’s the story of how Hanuman reached, A golden city in search of Sita, lady of his liege
How he faced off with the mighty Ravana
And held his capital Lanka to a fiery siege.
See how he uprooted an entire hill
Flew like the wind to save Lakshmana from death
How Rama’s loyal devotee showed us
What lies in his heart, the reason for his every breath.
About Bhakti Mathur
Bhakti a private banker by day and a mother by night, also an author for children’s series ‘Amma Tell Me’ books. She wrote and self-published her first book in 2011, and over the next 3 years the series has grown. She was motivated and inspired by these Indian mythological stories and wanted to share the same with her children. She found that there were no resources that were simple enough to understand and that could be captured by the rich imagery of the mythological Indian stories. She went ahead and started writing the stories in a style that she thought kids would find fun and non-preachy and collaborated on the illustrations to bring out the imagery of the story.
