Kheer-er Putul is the touching tale of a king, his two queens, a doll made of a typical Bengali sweet called kheer, and an extraordinary, talking monkey! Magical gifts are bought with shipfuls of gold. A malevolent witch sells mouth-watering sweets laced with viper venom! A hungry goddess (along with her cats) gives in to sweet temptation. Children play in an enchanted realm, invisible to the plain eye. Will the witty monkey be able to save the day? Woven by the tender, bright imagination of a gifted storyteller and artist, and crafted with words carefully chosen, like the perfect casting of a spell, this story flies us on a magic carpet into an unforgettable experience of the kingdom of childhood. Originally written in Bengali by Abanindranath Tagore, Kheer-er Putul is an evergreen children’s classic.
