Recommends it for: K-3 for read aloud
"When the powerful but mischievous Poombah of Badoombah finally takes things a bit too far, he is forced to flee the city and live out the rest of his days in the quiet of the countryside." This was a interesting story that would help children learn about another culture and a few new terms. There wasn't much to learn from this picture book so I probably would not read this to my students.

Written by Dee Lillegard and Illustrated by Kevin Hawkes

i was looking for some authentic portrayals of India in kids' books for a multicultural lit class, but this looks pretty Western to me.
