The Little Krishna Takes Retold by S. Pota

A Collection of three books : (1) The Magic Mountain (2)The Snake Fight (3) The Butter Thief.
The Snake Fight was what started it all. The story of Krishna and the snake Kalia. She just loved this one. She would say "I am not scared I am brave. Said Krishna and fought bravely." in the cutest possible way. But now whenever she says or seems afraid of something, we always tell "You are not scared, you are brave like Krishna".
Magic Mountain is the story of Krishna lifting the Govardhan mountain. Since she heard the word Govardhana in the songs she learns in her carnatic music class, she really enjoys this one too.
The Butter Thief is the least interesting in its presentation and one we read only occassionally.

I know a kid who loves this one too!

Have you tried Tulika books from India? They even have bilingual ones.

I love reading these stories to kids. If you haven't heard about them already please check out this bookshelf:
