1 Ranjit Lal
Black Limericks
IndiaInk/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8186939601 / 9788186939604; Softcover; New; 
Completely outclassed and overwhelmed by her genius younger brother Jayant, 17-year old Maya has always regarded herself as a 'background person'. Her only gift, it seems, is her ability to produce instant limericks - a talent which leaves her brother unimpressed and her friends appalled. All excepting Yash, the quick-witted precocious 15-year-old 'shoulder-high' boy she meets while on holiday at her uncle's beach resort on the west coast. However, a terrible truth, held back at a vital juncture changes her life forever and Maya suddenly finds herself catapulted to the 'centre of the universe' with the world looking up at her with 'awe and respect'. But Hari, her obnoxious 19-year-old cousin, plans his moves with predatory cunning and a 'nightmare beyond belief' begins for Maya, from which there seems no escape. Until one night when the spring tide runs strong and Maya is faced head on by her greatest fear yet again and must redeem - or condemn - herself forever. Printed Pages: 180. 108476

The Secret of Falcon Heights
Penguin Books India Pvt. Ltd.; Delhi, India; 2014; 014333333X / 9780143333333; Softcover; New; 
She’s beautiful. She’s fearless. She’s bewitching. So why is she the ‘leper’ of Pahadpur? Seventeen-year-old Sandeep and his younger brother, Manish, are not looking forward to spending three months in the remote Internet challenged hill station of Pahadpur with their military-minded aunt. Apart from taking care of their kid sister, Chubs, who has a tendency to wander off on her own, the boys have absolutely nothing to do in the holidays. But there is more to Pahadpur than meets the eye. Sandeep and Manish discover that the family next door, at Falcon Heights, is shunned by all the townsfolk. Who is the mysterious girl who lives there and flies a falcon every morning? As they unravel the secret with new friend Parul, two terrible but equally plausible stories emerge—only one of which can be true. When the truth is revealed, it brings all of them face-to-face with a horrifying fate, and it is left to little Chubs to save the day.Printed Pages: 248. 103429

The Simians of South Block and the Yumyum Piglets
IndiaInk/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 818693944X / 9788186939444; Softcover; New; 
A diabolical plan has just been set into motion by the anonymous powers that be, to rid Delhi's mighty South Block of the terrible Gutka the Gross and his Horde of One Hundred. They are to be translocated to the Shikhargunj National Park where they are to be put to better - and more sinister - use. At Shikhargunj, a leadership crisis has arisen. Sher Bahadur, its sole tiger, has taken sanyas and a bitter struggle for succession has broken out. Top contender, Dhoomdham, the clumsy, drooling leopard, must bring the head of the chief forest officer's little daughter, Aranya, to the Waterhole of the Truce to stake his claim. But then the horde arrives and all hell breaks loose as a dangerous 'hostage crisis'develops. Shockingly none of the other animals wish to get involved, but the Yumyum piglets have no choice in the matter. Cleverly, they inveigle the drooling Dhoomdham to help them, along with Bholu, the mighty elephant with suspect brakes and steering. An audacious plot is hatched to free the hostages, even as Aranya watches in amazement, and Gucci the posh croc smacks his huge jaws in anticipation. Printed Pages: 147. 108498

The Small Tigers of Shergarh
IndiaInk/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8186939288 / 9788186939284; Softcover; New; 
Orphaned in a car accident, fourteen-year-old Shikha and five-year-old Sunny reach Shergarh House, on the edge of the Shergarh Tiger Reserve, to live with their uncle Binoy, an eccentric painter. In the company of Aslambhai (a retired forest guard) and his mischievous grandson Ali, the children enter a new world; that of the sights and sounds of the jungle. Encouraged by Field Director Mr Rana's daughter, Dipti, and watched over by her family, the children begin to enjoy their forays into the reserve and get inexorably drawn into the lives of the reserve's magnificent tigers; macho 'doofus'shahenshah, ferocious Sheba and even terrifying Shaitan. But then, Veena aunty, a.k.a. 'Snail Snot', turns up, a 'social worker'who is set to inveigle herself into Binoy chacha's life and who wants to discredit the reserve in whatever way she can as part of her 'Good Work'. Accompanied by her unpleasant cousin, the slimeball Randhir, and his equally dubious friends, she is determined to send the children to separate boarding schools by whatever means possible. As the two hatch their diabolical plans, the children's lives seem ready to fall apart, again. But will the doughty Shikha allow that to happen? Will Sunny, struck dumb by the shock of the car crash, stop clinging to his sister and speak again? Will the two children, who run away into the reserve pursued by Veena, Randhir and his cronies, survive the perils of the forest? Can 'the small tigers of Shergarh'turn the tables on the villains and live up to their name? Printed Pages: 343. 108499
