In Bon Bibi’s Forest, written by Sandhya Rao and illustrated by Proiti Roy (Tulika Books)

"When the quiet villages of Sundarban are terrorised by Dokkhin Rai, a monster with wild eyes, sharp teeth, striped skin and pointed nails, Bon Bibi has to step in to look after the people. That’s when she realises that Dokkhin Rai himself needs protection – as do the forests that are his home."

"An owl drops a purple feather in a forest. A little girl picks it up and there begins a journey into magical lands..."
