This book takes a light-hearted look at the characters and creatures from the Hindu mythological stories. The stories involve a huge cast of characters, including gods, mortals, demons and even animals. They often have themes of good triumphing over evil, or explaining how things are created or destroyed. The book is structured as a 'Who's Who' of the culture's myths and legends and has an informal tone, allowing the characters' personalities to come through.

The chapters begin with a spread featuring factfiles of two characters. Each of these has an "In His Own Words" section, where the character himself (or herself) gives fast facts such as parents, powers, crowning achievements, and "Not to be confused with...". This is followed by a myth re-relling, presented in a magazine-style, featuring the two characters. In total there are six spreads of fact files (12 characters total) and six different re-tellings.
