What will this cosmic couple cook up next? Nancy Wood's lively take on how a duo of married chefs got all of us started is magically and hilariously brought to life through Timothy Basil Ering's extraordinary illustrations.

Deep in the heavens, in the space between the clouds, Mr. and Mrs. God are hard at work in their Creation Kitchen. They've got frying pans and mixing bowls, beaters and whisks, and an oven big enough to roast a star - which is just what they are doing After the sun and earth are finished, all kinds of interesting creations come next, with beaks and claws and growls and roars baked right in. When each creature is cooked to perfection, they set it down on Earth. But that's only the beginning. . . .

Ganga: The River That Flows from Heaven to Earth
Ganga
The River That Flows from Heaven to Earth
Hardcover      ISBN: 1591430895

Tells how the Hindu goddess Ganga came to Earth as the Ganges River

- Introduces children to one of the most beloved characters of Hindu mythology

- Illustrated throughout with full-color paintings in traditional Indian style

The Ganges River, which flows from the high reaches of the Himalayas all the way down to the Bay of Bengal, is sacred to the Hindu people, who consider it to be the earthly form of the goddess Ganga. The story of how Ganga was born, and how she became a river, tells of a journey from a place even higher than the Himalayan mountaintops--a journey from Heaven itself.

Born in a pot of sacred water, the baby Ganga grows into a beautiful and lighthearted girl, the darling of Heaven. But one day her sense of humor gets her in trouble. When grumpy Sage Durvasa is caught in a whirlwind that blows his clothes right off him, Ganga makes the mistake of laughing at him. In a rage, the sage puts a curse on her: "You must go to Earth as a river " Ganga is heartbroken and begs the sage to forgive her. He can't take back the curse, but seeing that she is truly sorry, he gives her a blessing as well: her water will purify the souls of men, releasing them from sin.

When Sage Baghirath prays to the gods to help him release the souls of his ancestors, Ganga comes tumbling from the sky and follows the sage across India, the river unfurling behind her. To this day millions of people take comfort in her healing waters, and Ganga, too, takes comfort in relieving their suffering.
