There was once a prince who hated food. One day the royal cook gives him something new to eat – a hot golden ball, crisp outside, soft inside... a bonda! After that there is no stopping either the prince or this mad tale that rolls its jolly way to an inevitably happy, bondaful end. The jaunty illustrations pick up all the comic clues along the way, to make it a truly 'silly' story.

A welcome break in an age obsessed with Size Zero
Reading A Silly Story Of Bondapalli is a delight precisely because the teller of this story is not standing on a high pedestal and teaching the readers any moral lessons. It is simply the story of a young prince who is a fussy eater and is not happy with even the most innovative of the royal cook’s preparations, much to the distress of the king and the queen.Goodbooks.in
A story of the round and happy people
Children will enjoy the bouncy rhythm of the story and cheer at the slapstick war that culminates at the end of the tale.Young India Books
