Ten lively stories about Emperor Akbar and his favourite courtier Birbal, that will delight every child. In the folk tradition of Akbar-Birbal stories, Birbal is known for his wit and wisdom. Both qualities are brought vividly in the exchanges between the great Mughal monarch and his irreverent and wise friend. Tapas Guha's charming illustrations capture the humour of the stories and bring alive the medieval city of Fatehpur Sikri where Akbar and Birbal actually lived. About the Author Monisha Mukundan spent her childhood travelling and though she has lived in Delhi ever since, she still loves to travel and to read of far-away places and far-away times. She has hundreds of travel plans and an equal number of stories, all of which she hopes will happen one day soon. This is her second book of Akbar and Birbal stories and her fifth book for children.
