The first book in a series on Hanuman,
The god that Amma likes best.
The trouble he got into as a baby,
Trying to gobble up the sun for breakfast.
Born in the being of the Wing god,
Blessed with mighty Shiva's divinity,
The story of the hard lesson that he learned:
That great power comes with great responsibility.
In this new and epic story,
Hanuman leaps across a mighty ocean,
With his forgotten powers regained,
And with his strength, wit and devotion.
The story of how he charmed a mountain,
Defeated a dragon and crushed a snake,
How he fought the powerful guard of Lanka,
On his great mission for Rama's sake!
Here's the story of how Hanuman reached
A golden city in search of Sita, lady of his liege.
How he faced off with the mighty Ravana
And held his capital Lanka to a fiery siege.
See how he uprooted an entire hill;
Flew like the wind to save Lakshmana from death;
How Rama's loyal devotee showed us -
What lies in his heart, the reason for his breath.
