Set in the jungles of South India and full of thrilling twists and turns, these tales about animals not only delight the reader but also teach important lessons about compassion, respect and responsibility for the natural world. Inspired by real-life experiences of the author, these are timeless stories that will live on in your mind long after you have put down the book.
