A short, fun introduction to the major Hindu deities, and their convoluted relationships, as well as a description of who is avatar to whom. The pictures are droll and humorous, and help to add a bit of color and life to the discussion of the unfamiliar gods and goddesses. I had been through a graduate level philosophy class that explained all this, but not in nearly as cogent or entertaining a manner. This book can be read and enjoyed by adults and children alike. It is far from being an encyclopedic look at Hinduism, but it doesn't pretend to be.
