Read aloud and giggle!

A series with the elephant, Gajapati Kulapati (well, the name itself has us in splits!) is pure brilliance! Gajapati's big sneeze, big splash, big tummy ache and all the mud splashing across the four books are accompanied by bold energetic graphics. A perfectly delightful book to sing along and hold the attention of little ones. @katha_kutuhala_khoj

A rage with children

His [Ashok Rajagopalan’s] Gajapati Kulapati series is much loved by thousands of children who adore the onomatopoeic words, the repetition and slapstick comedy around the genteel elephant and the villagers. Hamsini Ravi, The Huffington Post

Perfect for bedtime

A simple storyline with a problem which we normally do not think about. Onomatopoeic words like “pachaak” and “hoooosh” and “damaaaal” make it a story-teller’s delight and provide lots of fun for the child. Menaka S, PlusMinus’n’More

A name enough to bring the laughter back into storytelling

A perfectly delightful tale. One that has all the ingredients in place to make it a favourite read of children, younger and somewhat older ones too Young India Books
