The Demons of Rajpur book. I don't know anything about Bengali culture and h It is definitely good to have a book of tales from an underrepresented culture, so that's a point in this book's favor. I noticed that Betsy Bang had written another book of Bengali stories, so I assume that she's familiar with the appropriate cultural nuances, but I'm sad to say that I found the stories' voice to be a bit dull. To be honest, I mostly skimmed through the last two tales. Even Molly Bang's illustrations lacked their typical vivacity.

From these come eggs, then the same princes, who take up swords against the demons. The stories might be of interest as samples from their region, but Bang doesn't bring out their narrative appeal; and her introduction, though it does explain some of the images, doesn't shed any light on their sources or cultural origins.
