Description

In a small town in northern India, three siblings await their father’s youngest brother. They have heard many stories about Younguncle, so when he arrives, nine-year-old Sarita, seven-year-old Ravi, and the baby know their lives will be changed. From feeding a tiger spinach-paneer to charming an angry tree ghost,Younguncle’s adventures are as humorous and unusual as he is. Peppered with black-and-white illustrations, this entertaining chapter book was originally published to great acclaim in the author’s native India.
