What we liked about the book

1) Bright and colorful illustrations. The front cover reminded me of Harry Potter riding in buck beak.

2) The story starts with a small introduction to all the characters in the story.

2) Along with the story, they teach the traditions of India and also the landscapes and important places.

3) At the end of the story, they have the facts page which gives more information about the topic they discussed in the story.

4) The small game, in the end, is fun for curious minds.

It's altogether a great book and kids will love it for sure.
