Welcome to Bookistaan

Bookistaan is India’s first recommendations based online children’s bookstore

As a small town bookstore, we have an inclination towards Indian publishing and writing, that hasn’t been able to find the routes into smaller towns. We believe it’s important for children to be exposed to their own literature for them to grow into empathetic individuals, proud of their own roots.

Reeja Radhakrishnan

The Big Book of World Mythology

These first stories from around the world reveal oodles about the cultures, fears, imagination, lifestyle and beliefs of the ancient human race across waters. The recurring themes and ideas also reveal that even though these races were culturally and geographically separated, they were somehow linked by winds of thought.

How things unfold?

The Big Book of World Mythology is divided into seven parts, classifying the stories on the basis of their origin (the seven continents). Reeja Radhakrishnan takes the reader on a spectacular journey, through time, across seas, digging history to find these tales which have part of cultures for generations. Along the way we meet Gods from Greece, India, Egypt, Scandinavia and mythical creatures like the firebird, dragons, fairy folks, and many more.
