Enter the secret world of your wild pets!

Ever wondered why this world’s called a rat race?
Why does your teacher call you the chatter bird of the class?

How did those dratted lice get in your hair?

Let’s find out the answers to these and more in this exciting one-of-a-kind backyard-jungle book. Wilderness and wildlife aren’t just confined to the forests; there is a whole lot of wild in our own backyards! Some of these critters are awake with you in the day. Others wake up when you go to bed…

Discover the hunters and the hunted, the diggers and the tunnellers, the raptors and the roaches, roaming around under our very noses.

Say hi to them and take a look at their home, which, incidentally, is also ours.

About the Author

The author spent her childhood treading the jungles of Aravali with her naturalist father. As a child, she was often found trying to catch a snake or spin a yarn. She grew up to be a story-spinner and was appointed the honorary wildlife warden of Udaipur for a term. She is the author of several fiction and non-fiction books, and writes columns and articles for various dailies and magazines. A dreamer as well as a rationalist, she is a serial traveller who wants to go on an endless journey, starting with Planet Earth. (Irrational for a rationalist? Ask her companion, Aditya!)
