This is the story of 8-year-old Diya, who lives with her family in a little village in the Sunderbans-with its mangroves, waterways and dense forests.Diya and her beloved goat Mishti go through a serious of adventures that bring them face to face with some of the most dreaded creatures of the Sunderbans - the King Cobra, the crocodile and the majestic Royal Bengal Tiger. This endearing story comes with a message about the laws of nature and the precarious state of our natural heritage, which every child needs to know and make their own. Given our bleak wildlife scenario, a story with a strong conservation message is very valuable in itself. But One Night in the Sunderbans, is special for other reasons as well. It is a good story, told well, which grabs and holds one's attention. The powerful illustrations complement the message and plot Tannaz Daver makes the Sunderbans come alive through the careful use of detail the Genwa and K'nalsa flowers, the honey-collectors, and of course the Sundari trees. A perfect addition to a family bookshelf. ~ Zai Whitaker, Author, Teacher & Environmentalist.
