The King of Banaras and his army have arrived in the monkey kingdom in search of a mango tree. Can Kapi, the monkey king, find a way to protect his home and his subjects? This exciting narrative filled with South Asian music, sound effects and colorful pictures bring alive the stories like never before.

Behind all this fun is a powerful learning experience designed by educators to:

- fire your child's imagination
- develop reading and language skills
- improve concentration and attention span

Reviews & Comments: It's evident that the singing and speaking voices have been carefully chosen to showcase a range of Indian English accents so that young listeners come away from the experience believing that the proper British way is the only way to speak the language. - India Today

This is a winning series for libraries wishing to offer cultural opportunities to young readers. - School Library Journal.
