Revenge of the Puppets
by Nadine D'souza
Age Range: 6-8
In the village of Rajasthani, four puppets – Jhumri, Veer,Kalia and Dagdu come alive every night. One evening they overhear their masters, Bhairo and Bhanu, discussing the need to replace them because they feel they are old and tattered. By creating some new puppets they believe it will breathe fresh life into their performances. The very next night they set to work but what they don’t anticipate is that their existing clever and mischievous puppets have no intention of being discarded and they have a lot of fun as they begin to thwart their masters’ plan.
This lovely tale by Nadine D’souza has rich, colourful illustrations by Ayush Rajvanshi that leap off the page bringing the puppets to life.
