Mulla Nasruddin (Tales of wit and wisdom)
Description
About The Book

As thirteen-year–old Shashank sits despairing over his Maths homework, a little doodle comes alive and reveals himself as Mulla Nasruddin (MN). Shashank starts writing down MN’s hilarious escapades-of falling off roofs and defeating the Traveling Brainies; of staying dry in the rain and finding a road on the top of a tree; how he once ate a whole basket of chillies; and how he tried to get rid of Timur the Lame’s pet elephant.

Taking the much–loved tales of Mulla Nasruddin into a young boy’s richly imaginative world, Sampurana Chattarji’s retelling is one that will entertain and move adults and children alike.

 

About The Author

Sampurna Chattarji was born in Africa, grew up in Darjeeling, went to college in New Delhi and worked for seven year in advertising in Kolkata and Mumbai before becoming a full-time writer. Her collection of stories, The Greatest stories Ever Told, and her translation of Sukumar Ray’s poetry and prose, Abol Tabol: The Nonsense World of Sukumar Ray, are both available in Puffin. Her books for adults include a poetry collection, Sight May Strike You Blind published by the Sahitya Akademi in 2007.
