The Penchantantra is an ancient Indian collection that uses animal fables to tell stories. It is thought to have been written in Hindi originally. The original author is unknown for sure but the credit is usually given to Vishnu Sharma. These tales were most likely originally passed down orally.

The tales are probably actually as old as any of us could imagine so it would e very hard to track down the true author or multiple authors of these fables. This collection is said to be the most frequently translated literary product in India even to date.

Panchantantra is an ancient Indian collection of interconnected stories. This stories are in the form of animal fables and are written in Sanskrit, verse, and prose. The text's original author is actually unknown but the collection is credited to Vishnu Sharma. It is most likely a Hindu text containing fables that have been passed down orally.

For many more years than the book has even benn publsihed. In fact the tales contained within are proaly just as old as we can stretch our imaginations. The larger book is roken up into 5 smaller books.
