The Bengali language has never been quite so much a living, breathing creature of whimsy as in Sukumar Ray s hands, and his creations wild and wicked, dreamy and delirious have thrilled children and adults alike. This selection offers you the best of his world pun-riddled, fun-fiddled poetry from Abol Tabol and Khai-Khai, stories of schoolboy pranks (Pagla Dashu) and madcap explorers (Heshoram Hushiyarer Diary), and the unforgettable harum-scarum classic of Haw-Jaw-Baw-Raw-Law, presented here for the first time in its entirety. All the stories and poems are accompanied by Sukumar Ray s inimitable illustrations.
