9788189013394: Younguncle in the Himalayas

Vandana Singh s first book, Younguncle Comes to Town, was an instant classic of children s literature. Now, in this highly anticipated follow-up, Younguncle finds himself on an adventure in the mountains of India.
In Younguncle in the Himalayas, our protagonist arrives with his family at the gloomy, mysterious Hotel Pine-Away and soon discovers that their mountain holiday is going to be anything but peaceful. As Younguncle chats with monkeys and debates the true nature of reality with an offbeat sect of the Quantum Banana spiritualists, the fate of the picturesque little valley hangs in the balance. Who is the strange Rat-girl who charms rodents out of the hotel? Can the children and their eccentric uncle thwart the schemes of the dangerous city-slicker Pradeep Daalmakhini? Can Younguncle help Daalmakhini s intended bride escape a fate worse than death? Has our favorite adventurer finally met his match?

When Younguncle and his family head go off on a Himalayan holiday, you know the hills are never going to be the same again. Carrying a message from the monkeys of the plains to their mountain-dwelling relatives, Younguncle and the three children embark on a series of hilarious encounters at the gloomy, mysterious and haunted Hotel Pine-Away. As Younguncle chats with the monkeys, debates the true nature of reality with an off-beat sect of Quantum Banana Spiritualists, the fate of the picturesque little valley hangs in the balance. Who is the strange Rat-girl, who charms the rodents out of their hotel? Can the children and their eccentric uncle thwart the plans of that 50-Lakh Bridegroom, Pradeep Dalmakhni? Can Younguncle help Dalmakhni?s intended bride to escape a fate worse than death? Or has he, finally, met his match? For all those who have been enchanted by Younguncle in the first book, this new adventure will be a delight. And if you haven?t met him before, Younguncle will be a friend for life!
