ABOUT THE BOOK

Mission Brief: When a pigeon delivers an urgent call for help, the AIA finds itself deep in an adventure that takes them from India to London to France, into the horrific world of animal testing. Two hundred monkeys are slated to be euthanized in a laboratory, but that challenge is nothing compared to the one they stumble upon.

Led by a mysterious mastermind called Alpha, the abused lab animals have rallied to take the ultimate revenge on their tormentors. Their plan is to wipe out an entire animal species – Homo sapiens – off the face of the earth, using a deadly virus. And only Rana, Bagha and Kela can stop them.

As Rana battles against time to save himself and the human race, he encounters a Shakespeare-quoting Gorilla, a French socialite and an overweight and overwrought Miss World. But deadly deceit and betrayal is close on his heels on the toughest AIA mission yet. Will he make it?

SNAPSHOT REVIEW

  • The third book in the Animal Intelligence Agency series, this one tackling the issue of animals used in medical experimentation and cosmetic trials.
  • A rollicking adventure story based in England and France, with a varied and quirky cast of characters.
  • The book treads on thin ice claiming that all animal-based medical experimentation has been useless.
  • While the protagonist’s insistence on non-violence is commendable, the book doesn’t make a distinction with fighting back for survival.

CONCLUSION

A rollicking adventure story featuring two protagonists who are perfect foils to each other.

“For a teacher or librarian faced with dozens of books to read, a good book review website is as essential as maps are for geographers.”

“Indian children’s books rarely get the kind of publicity they deserve in the popular or social media. Websites like Goodbooks plug the gap by not letting a single Indian children’s book of merit slip through the cracks. Most people would not even know about the books available in the market if not for a resource like this.”
