Jhupli’s Honey Box (English)

Author : Achintyarup Ray
Illustrator : Shivam Choudhary

Where is Baba? Why is he not back yet? Jhupli is restless as evening sets in. Her father has gone into the dense jungle to gather honey and she is afraid. Because there are tigers in the forest. Because people sometimes go inside and never come out. Must Baba go in danger every day? Jhupli has an idea – honey boxes!
Mood-filled pictures and text weave Jhupli’s constant anxiety into the sweep of the magnificent Sundarban, a place as menacing as it is beautiful, in a story that points to the plight of its honey gatherers.
