The stories of Kakababu have long been a part of childhood for a generation of Bengalis. This new translation beautifully captures that spirit of adventure, and gives a glimpse of the history and diversity of our country. Perfect for children looking for adventure stories in an Indian setting, and perhaps learn a little about our country in the process. Hopefully the first of many more Kakababu adventures to come.
I grew up reading the Kakababu stories in Bengali. I couldn’t imagine how much I would enjoy reading the English translations of Bhoyonkor Shundor and Sabuj Dweeper Raja as an adult. I’m now eagerly looking forward to the next volumes.
