It is a very good story book for kids. Vikram-Vetal stories have always attracted kids. The legendary king Vikramaditya (Vikrama) promises a tantric that he will capture a Vetal, a celestial spirit Pishacha or a vampire who hangs from a tree and inhabits and animates dead bodies.
In this Vikram Vetal story book king Vikrama faces many difficulties in bringing the Vetal to the tantric. Each time Vikram tries to capture the Vetal, it tells a story that ends with a riddle. If Vikram cannot answer the question correctly, the vampire consents to remain in captivity. If the king knows the answer but still keeps quiet, then his head shall burst into thousand pieces. And if King Vikrama answers the question correctly, the vampire would escape and return to his tree. He knows the answer to every question; therefore the cycle of catching and releasing the vampire continues twenty-four times.
