The four reluctant heroes are plunged into a set of absurd adventures where they meet a ferocious Chinese bandit, a sadhu with a sweet tooth and several ghosts who have the nasty habit of cackling in the middle of the night. The author is a well-known writer whose character Tenida continues to be one of the most popular figures in Bengali children's literature. Swati Bhattacharjee's highly readable translation captures the unique rhythms of Indian English and the eccentricity of Narayan's prose.
