The story of an ancient Indian king who goes on a fetch quest through an evil-looking cemetery and listens to the worst podcasts of all time...hosted by a ghoul he has slung over his shoulder, and if he doesn't pay attention, he could die.
The creature is a crow-grasshopper who will make you vomit (if it doesn't kill you with its flatulence)

The most readable, but maybe the most paraphrased: https://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/ttg/index.htm
The Ocean of Streams of Story
Not super-readable, but not bad. The fun starts on page 232: https://archive.org/details/kathsaritsga02somauoft/page/230/mode/2up
Another Version of Ocean with a different telling of the 25 tales. Starts on page 198: https://archive.org/details/oceanofstorybein07somauoft/page/198/mode/2up
Vikram and the Vampire
This one probably differs the most, down to calling the Vetala a vampire which is a common, if inaccurate, translation: https://www.sacred-texts.com/goth/vav/index.htm
Good job with the Indian myths! As a child, I’ve heard a different version of it but this was if anything, more enjoyable than my grandma’s version. :)
