Animals and birds inhabit this tale of extraordinary courage, told by one of Indias best childrens writers.
When danger comes to a large forest filled with big, brave animals, only a tiny bird can save everyone...
The forest stands still as the black clouds begin to roll in again. Every year, the Monsoon Armys rain comes down harder, destroying trees and plants, nests and burrows. And the rain brings with it gushing, flooded rivers. This year, all the animals know the army will not stop till it has washed away their homes. Should they flee? Should they fight? Or will they trust the unlikeliest hero among them to save their lives?
Find out what happens when even the littlest one decides to be brave, in this story of extraordinary courage, told by one of Indias best childrens writers.
