The translated stories in this volume are written by some of the most well-known writers for children in Bangla across the twentieth century-Sukumar Roy, Sibram Chakraborty, Lila Majumdar and Asha Purna Devi. They are all set within the everyday situation of home and school in which children hardly have any outlet or access to adventure. Since the stories are not intended for toddlers, their readers cannot be expected to take a break from reality by identifying themselves with fantastic dreamscapes and relocating themselves beyond the realms of the possible. How then, do child characters/readers of a somewhat older age group add some colour and spice in their otherwise dull lives? Find out for yourselves… Contents Introduction 1.
