Description: Hand-drawn illustrations and easy-to-relate characters bring alive The Story of Kalidas: The Gem among Poets, a new addition to the Good Earth series of children's books. It introduces the reader to the renowned Sanskrit poet Kalidasa, taking us through the life of a guileless young boy who grew up to be the mind behind works that influence Indian literature even today.

The back of the book has a section with information on Kalidasa's works, other historically famous Sanskrit writers, as well as on Gupta emperor Chandragupta II (Vikramaditya), in whose court Kalidasa is said to have been one of the nine gems. The endpapers have stylised motifs of flowers, birds, butterflies and squirrels that are a treat for a child's imagination.
