Chakrampur is a prosperous little town thanks to its smart mayor, Piloo Paheliji. He loves to show off how clever he is by asking riddles no one can answer, and even celebrates a Riddle Day every year. Whoever can answer his riddle that day stands to win a thousand rupees. But twelve years have gone by, and there have been no winners. The thirteenth Riddle Day dawns... Author Nadine D'Souza is more than a match for Paheliji as she confounds confusion by cleverly drawing on something kids find fun all over the world. Riddles are a part of every culture and that's what this book celebrates. The illustrations capture all the fun of the story.

A very simple and refreshing book

This is a very simple and refreshing book, that will be enjoyed by the little ones. The answers given by the boy disguised as riddles, are quite cleverly thought out. In his speech, Paheliji talks about how he is excited that day, because thirteen has always been his lucky number. This subtle positive reference to a number, that is in general considered unlucky by so many people around the world, impressed me. Saffrontree.org
