Everyone’s favourite Monkey God is back, in a delightful avatar! Beautiful illustrations, exciting games and activities and a fun and engaging narration add to the appeal of this retelling of Hanuman’s life. Join Hanuman on a rollicking journey from his childhood days when he tried to eat the Sun, to his helping Ram and Lakshman rescue Sita from Ravana’s clutches.

My Review
I love this book because my kids love it. Being a children's book, I gave it to my toddler and preschooler.  They were unprecedentedly hooked the book. In an era when even the parents are unaware of mythology, the book will be a great treasure to the kids. Kids are in love with the monkey god.

The story is crafted in such a way that kids are encouraged to read it. The book is nothing short of a 3D movie. More than the religious  aspect, it is the cuteness, bravery and righteousness of the monkey god that attracts the kids. Along with the story, there are several games and mazes which makes the book the perfect gift for the kids. The book will incite an attachment with the books at an age as early as two. It is the real 'paisa vasool' product.

The highlight of the book is the excellent illustration which is attractive, lively and positive. It is a perfect gift for your kid.
