About the Book :

Did you see him shoot a tiger? I asked.

Oh, many times, said Mehmoud. A tiger a weekthat was nothing to Carpet-sahib!

Did the tigers come to the house, or did you go looking for them? Thus starts Mehmouds stories about working as khansama, or cook, for the great shikari Jim Corbett. As deft with his stories as he is with koftas, lamb chops, pies and milkshakes, Mehmoud has a tall tale for every occasion. From wrestling with a cobra in his bed, being carried away into the river by a muggermuch, to when a tiger came looking for the cook, these stories leave little Ruskin spellbound.

Join Mehmoud in the kitchen as he cooks up one delectable meal after another, and gobble down his delicious stories of man-eating tigers, incompetent maharajas, missing kitchen boys and haunted pillows, all brought vividly to life by Sunaina Coelhos captivating illustrations.TRUE

Firstly, wonderful delivery by Infibeam. The book is not really hilarious, and the stories are more anecdotal and nostalgic as the author recollects memories of his childhood. The sketches are very nicely done by Sunaina Coelho and compliment the stories very well. Don't buy this book if you are looking for laughs, rather buy it to see the world from the eyes of a young person. After reading the book, you may well catch yourself smiling apparently for no reason, however at the thought of Mehmoud and his tell tales of Carpet Sahib.

It's a children's book. But that doesn't mean an adult cannot get a slice of such a happiness pie. Its illustrated nicely, written simply to engage a child's flickering interests, but I found it appealing still, finished in one go, its like shutting off the noises from the adult traffic and gobbling quietly into a warm cupcake on a winter afternoon. Thank you Enid Blyton, Ruskin Bonds, Rudyard Kipling and other child authors for providing us with a welcome open door for us to escape into pure clean nostalgia.
