Like the other volumes in this great series, Kamala highlights lesser-known folktales that are as memorable, clever, and fun as any you've heard before. In fact, some of the smartest folktales I've encountered have been through these books. I particularly enjoyed "The Legend of Knockmany," "Kupti and Imani," and "The Lute Player." And if you enjoyed Kamala, check out the other three volumes in the Feminist Folklore series, Tatterhood, Sea Girl, and The Hunter Maiden.
