The residents of Bargad chawl are in danger of losing their homes – their nooks and crannies, shelters and perches. Ali, the monkey, has to find a way out. He swings, jumps and leaps into action, and comes up with a monkey trick that gives a new twist to the phrase, ‘playing god' in this hilarious and heartwarming story!

Absolutely stupendous

The story line is delightfully simple and straightforward but deceptively so. There are layers and layers to it. The child enjoys it for the story, rhythm and the roller coaster of emotions it causes. Jaya Bhattacharji Rose, publishing consultant

‘A true picture book’

When Ali became Bajrangbali is a perfect example of how a modern day children’s book can be likeable without being preachy, funny yet share the message of harmony, convey love and respect for all without being wordy! What is more, the chemistry between the narration and illustration from start to finish is totally in sync, making it likely to be revisited by young and old readers, over and over again.
