A hot summer day, an old man in dusty clothes who calls himself a maharaja, a little boy Munna who believes him, and a teashop full of people who don’t… With the familiar feel of a folktale, this delightful story
keeps the reader guessing till the end! Going with the flavour, Deepa Balsavar chooses a style she calls ‘part
folksy, part whimsy’, giving a contemporary setting to a traditional tale. Acrylic illustrations carry the whiff of a
hot-dry landscape with pops of colour, gathering the hustle-bustle of Munna’s day with a man who is or is
not a maharaja!
