Younguncle in the Himalayas (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


Vandana Singh's first book, Younguncle Comes to Town, was an instant classic of children's literature. Now, in this highly anticipated follow-up, Younguncle finds himself on an adventure in the mountains of India. In Younguncle in the Himalayas, our protagonist arrives with his family at the gloomy, mysterious Hotel Pine-Away and soon discovers that their mountain holiday is going to be anything but peaceful. As Younguncle chats with monkeys and debates the true nature of reality with an offbeat sect of the Quantum Banana spiritualists, the fate of the picturesque little valley hangs in the balance. Who is the strange Rat-girl who charms rodents out of the hotel? Can the children and their eccentric uncle thwart the schemes of the dangerous city-slicker Pradeep Daalmakhini? Can Younguncle help Daalmakhini's intended bride escape a fate worse than death? Has our favorite adventurer finally met his match?
