Journey into a land of fantasy and adventure with a master storyteller.

Bogey and his sister Rumu are agonizing over the disappearance of a beloved pet when they find solace and understanding from an unexpected quarter—their wise servant Jhogru. From the yellow bird whose feather has turned their dog into a little boy, to the existence of the mythical winged horse, to the guna-moni tree that only flowers when planted on an ash-heap, Jhogru’s zany tales draw the children into an enchanting world of magic where fact and fiction merge.

Lila Majumdar’s sensitivity and imagination, along with dashes of wit and humour, have long made this award-winning novella an unforgettable childhood experience for many readers. Available in English for the first time, this classic adventure will delight children everywhere.


‘Magically charged stories for children to grow up with, and for grown-ups to relive their childhood—and what a storyteller, Lila Majumdar.’
--- Gulzar
