Graa-aaa-aaa-ooo-oon! Every time Beni Ram tries to sell his camel, Bholu promptly trots back. “The villagers use vans now instead of camel-carts. Nobody wants to give your old man a job anymore,” says a gloomy Beni Ram. But fate has surprising plans for the out-of-luck Beni Ram and his beloved camel... The warm and vivid illustrations beautifully capture the special bond between the man and his camel. 

Funny, tender and charming

The accentuation of Bholu’s expressions with his grin and eyes, endear almost immediately and the use of motifs, colours and prints from ‘Rajasthan’ – the region make the book seem well represented… Kavitha Punniyamurthi whose dedication caught my eye immediately keeps relationships alive in this story. There is always a preciousness to man and beast relationships. Bookworm Trust

Ride in this fun story

Did you know that camels can be excellent problem-solvers? When Bholu Came Back shows us just how much a camel can care for his owner and a difficult “situation.” The Taparia Camel Safari business can always use one more camel, so come along for the ride in this fun story for very young readers. From the South Asia Book Awards citation for Highly Commended Book in 2017

A truly unforgettable story

When Bholu Came Back is a superb find from Tulika Books that offers a rather unusual storyline about camels and life on the desert. I love such books that give a peephole to a fresh concept. It gave a whole new set of conversation starters between me and my son! Gomathi Kannan, Toka Box
