Lined up on a street are noisy motorbikes, honking cars, crowded buses, impatient autos... In their midst sits a queenly Maharani! At the heart of this funny little vignette is a cool-as-a-cucumber cow, an all too familiar character of an Indian streetscape. Nancy Raj’s full-of-life pictures bustle with detail and drama, capturing the bovine and the boisterous as everyone tries to unseat her highness.

Bursting with drama and detail
The illustrations in this book are truly masterly – each page is bursting with drama and detail, till one can almost imagine themselves in that scorching heat… - "The Book Review"
Charming streetscape artworks
Maharani, an irresistibly “cool-as-a-cucumber” metro cow has decided to plonk herself on the road, and that too, right in the middle of a typically traffic-heavy city road. Well, what follows is a series of side-splittingly funny scenes as pedestrians, a policeman, school children, and auto drivers try tonudge Maharani to move.Saffrontree.org
Situations made infinitely more entertaining
Nancy Raj's observational details – be it the nonchalance of the cow and its antics or the mayhem caused by children in a school bus – make every situation infinitely more entertaining. From The Hindu Young World-Goodbooks Award 2018 citation
