Sought after for his colourful coat, Rajah may be possessed of immense strength, but he is impetuous and careless. He often has to be saved from this scourge by resourceful and brave humbler members of the jungle, such as the squirrel Lil Squi and the jungle mouse Chuhi. They’re joined by Hathi, Loombar, Magar and others. Written lyrically with beautiful illustrations, Rajah of the Jungle makes a unique contribution to the children’s literature. Intended to be read out to younger children, these delectable tales can be enjoyed by parents and teachers also. For older children, the poetic prose is a source of inspiration.
