Sringeri Srinivasan has had a bumper crop of bananas from his farm.  He wants to distribute it amongst the neighbours, but although, sweet, luscious and delicious, they have all had enough and do not want any more.

Poor Singeri Srinivasan, what should he do with the bumper harvest? He comes up with a plan and it seems to work!

One day, a neighbour approaches him for some bananas required by the priest to conduct a pooja. Sringeri Srinivasan agrees to supply them. On the day of the pooja he comes laden not bananas but...a suprise packet! b]

Illustrated in parts in a graphic novel style, the book with its bright colours and strong lines is an attention grabber.

Crisp text, tongue-in-cheek humour and great illustrations - it is sure to delight the heart of any child.
