Upendrakishore’s Tuntunir Boi is a classic on which most Bengali children have been weaned. Tuntuni is the original Tweety Bird from Bengal-tiny but irrepressible. Catch her as she tackles the Cat, the Barber, and, finally, the King himself ! Keeping her company in this collection is the majestic Majantali; a procession of wily tigers; cunning foxes; and toothless, but dauntless grannies who make short work of cunning thieves and conniving animals. Though set in rural Bengal, the stories have a universal appeal. Perhaps this is the reason why they’ve remained a favorite for over three generations.

This book wouldn't have been possible without the gracious permission of Mr Sandeep Ray to change the endings of some of the stories, and the unstinted support of authors original editor Ms Sugeeta Roy Chowdhury.
