KOOBANDHEE — THE ADVENTURES OF BALA AND THE BOOK-BARFING MONSTER

Bala’s books — and his life — are under threat. He has to contend with a book-chewing little sister and Mrs. Shashee, the librarian with a zero-tolerance policy for anyone who misplaces or mutilates books.

Things get worse when Bala encounters the one-eyed book-barfing monster, Koobandhee (no relation to the headless rakshasa, Kabandha). She blames Bala for her malfunctioning digestive system and threatens to swallow him like a tiny pip. Will Bala survive? Or will he vanish without a trace?
