Abol Tabol: The Nonsense World of Sukumar Ray

Sampurna Chattarji (Translator)
Synopsis The Bengali language has never been quite so much a living, breathing creature of whimsy as in Sukumar Ray's hands, and his creations - wild and wicked, dreamy and delirious - have thrilled children and adults alike. This selection offers you the best of his world - pun-riddled, fun-fiddled poetry from Abol Tabol and Khai Khai, stories of schoolboy pranks (Pagla Dashu) and madcap explorers (Heshoram Hushiyarer Diary), and the unforgettable harum-scarum classis Haw-Jaw-Baw-Raw-Law, presented here for the first time in its entirety. All the stories and poems are accompanied by Sukumar Ray's inimitable illustrations. Sampurna Chattarji's lively new translation captures the magical nonsense groove of the Bengali original through a freewheeling play of sound and sense. This book is sure to captivate Sukumar Ray fans and win him a whole new generation of admirers.
