Gundu and Keeri Humongoose are normal mongooses. They are hasty, they chatter with chirps or clicks, they eat rats… But then they do something that Do-First-Think-Later animals do not. They take a decision! To move out of the jungle! And so begins their adventure into the unknown… filled with danger from two-legged creatures.


Funny and quirky, the story is sprinkled with concerns about the environment, and also with little-known mongoose traits that author Zai Whitaker knows well – she’s had them as pets!

A rollercoaster ride!

In her latest book, Adventures of the Humongoose Family, author and conservationist Zai Whitaker takes a topic as serious as deforestation and loss of habitat, then treats it with gentle humour. For the 65-year-old, mongooses aren’t just an academic subject; they are family. The Hindu

The story and the language both flow effortlessly.

Zai's relationship with the animal world and her lightness of touch make this book a sure hit for young readers..........The episode with Raja, the old tracker mongoose had a 12 year old reader in gales of laughter. An enjoyable read..Parag Honour List 2020

Giving human voices and thoughts to a family of mongooses

Gundu and Keeri portray a perfect balance between patience and spontaneity; wisdom and superficial knowledge and above all the willingness to try out new things as against a desire for status quo. Lessons of trial, team work and love which hold together the bonds within a family at the nuclear level and the community on a larger platform form the core of the book.The Book Review
