My Review
I love this book because my kids love it. Being a children’s book,
I gave it to my toddler and preschooler.  They were unprecedentedly
hooked the book. In an era when even the parents are unaware of mythology, the
book will be a great treasure to the kids. Kids are in love with the monkey
The story is crafted in such a way that kids are encouraged to
read it. The book is nothing short of a 3D movie. More than the religious 
aspect, it is the cuteness, bravery and righteousness of the monkey god that attracts
the kids. Along with the story, there are several games and mazes which makes
the book the perfect gift for the kids. The book will incite an attachment with
the books at an age as early as two. It is the real ‘paisa vasool’ product.
The highlight of the book is the excellent illustration which is
attractive, lively and positive. It is a perfect gift for your kid.
