Upendrakishore’s Tuntunir Boi is a classic on which most Bengali children have been weaned. Tuntuni is the original Tweety Bird from Bengal-tiny but irrepressible. Catch her as she tackles the Cat, the Barber, and, finally, the King himself ! Keeping her company in this collection is the majestic Majantali; a procession of wily tigers; cunning foxes; and toothless, but dauntless grannies who make short work of cunning thieves and conniving animals. Though set in rural Bengal, the stories have a universal appeal. Perhaps this is the reason why they’ve remained a favorite for over three generations.
