Description

On the south-west coast of India are the kingdoms of the Malabar, where the Zamorin of Kozhikode, the Raja of Kottayam and various other kings vie for power.

Kunhaayan is humble born but his sharp wit and quick thinking take him to the region’s foremost teacher, and from there to the courts of the kings engaged in perpetual competition. Be it discovering the sinister power of ceremonial gifts or dealing with a too-acquisitive king, Kunhaayan can find magic solutions to problems that could create trouble and mayhem. But even he occasionally meets his match-as when he chooses to cross swords with his wife.

This collection of twelve tales contains all the fun and wisdom that make Kunhaayan a noted and well-loved figure in Kerala.
