In this exciting novel, a boy learns about tigers, about the jungle, and about himself. 

When Sunil is sent to stay with his Uncle Vish, he doesn’t know quite what to expect. All he knows is that it’s a long way from the city to the jungles of Madhya Pradesh, and that his Uncle’s job is to protect the tigers that live there. Befriended by a tribal girl named Jungu, Sunil soon has to face some tough questions. If the tigers are to survive, then the people must be moved out of the forest. But what will happen to Jungu and all the other Baiga villagers? Don’t they have a right to be there? And meanwhile, there’s a very real, very dangerous gang of poachers to be caught.

Vithal Rajan’s delightful tale of an unusual friendship between a city boy and an Adivasi girl introduces children to the magical world of the Baigas, teaching tolerance, respect and the importance of protecting the natural environment.
