The quiet villages of Sundarban are terrorised by a monster with wild eyes, sharp teeth, striped skin and pointed nails — Dokkhin Rai! Until finally, Bon Bibi, protector of the forests and people, asks him a simple question: Why do you do this? The answer to this question is central to the age-old theme of human-animal harmony. Set in the lush and mysterious Sundarban in Bengal, the textured narrative and dramatic, detailed illustrations evoke the distinct culture of the place — the confluence of Hindu and Muslim mythologies, and the rhythm and concerns of everyday life at the edge of a forest.
