Description

Through the pages of this amazing book witness a lyrically moving journey that is life affirming.  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. The book  is a unique and enriching contribution to children's literature.

 
The jungle of India is awesome—where beauty and mortal danger walk hand in hand. Rajah—the mighty tiger—is being hunted by man for his beautiful coat. Each attempt is thwarted by the resourceful animals of the jungle. As man is determined with each foiled attempt, will the animals be able to outwit man’s treacherous plots to keep their friend and ruler safe?
 
Rajah may be possessed of immense strength, but he is impetuous and careless. He often has to be saved 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.
 
Balraj Khanna is a painter and writer. His previous publications include Human and Divine: 2000 Years of Indian Sculpture (2001), Sweet Chillies (1991) and Nation of Fools: Scenes from Indian Life (1985).
 
Sean Victory is a freelance illustrator as well as a muralist painting in London schools. His work is represented in numerous private collections.

 
 

Praise

The lucid narrative keeps the reader entrapped! The stunningly sketched illustrations by Sean Victory enhance the drama of the jungle tale. The thoughtful use of colours on every page is a great idea.
The Hindu

"'The author Balraj Khanna has conveyed a beautiful message of togetherness in his book 'Rajah-King of the Jungle'."
