About the book: The five stories in the book are inspired by Japanese tales. The author states in the preface that the volume can very well be seen as a sequel to his earlier publication of Japanese stories for children - Japani Phanush.
The final tale “Indurer Mokorddoma” had been rendered in rhymed verse by the author’s friend – the well known poet Stayendranath Dutta.
Illustrations: The volume uses illustrations in abundance. The appeal of the tales, peopled with animal characters, is greatly enhanced by the pretty single-toned pictures. All the illustrations are carried out in a Western style.
Genre: Adaptation of Japanese tales
