A perfectly adorable children’s book, first published in India, about the adventures of the eccentric Younguncle.

In this set of short stories, Younguncle helps people, evades steady employment, and fights crime (really!) via an assortment of madcap schemes. In one story he extracts his sister from engagement to a jerk by pretending to be a lunatic raised by monkeys; in another he teams up with a vengeful ghost and makes clever use of lipstick, bangles, and spinach paneer to rescue both a lady and a tiger.

Funny, atmospheric, and sweet. Its setting in small-town India, with its assortment of colorful human and animal characters, is vividly evoked.

This chapter book is suitable for anyone old enough to read it. Singh’s witty turns of phrase and eye for human foibles should entertain any adult readers.
