ABOUT THE BOOKMiss Bandicota Bengalensis was not just any little Indian mole rat. She had magical eyes like no other mole rat, and she wanted to see everything. Every night, she packed her explorer’s kit: her sunglasses, binoculars, magnifying glass and, of course, her favourite – a strip of sticker bandages. “An explorer is always prepared,” she said. She always he dug in a new direction and then returned through a new burrow! This time our unlikely explorer has surfaced near the sea. Enjoy a walk along the beach with her as she befriends a host of strange creatures.
- An Indian mole rat explores her surroundings, this time the beach, in yet another edition of the Miss Bandicota adventures.
- Readers keen on nature, especially learning about lesser known, lesser seen creatures, will find the fact-cum-fiction format of this book interesting.
- Though the story is an anthropomorphised telling of the adventures of a mole rat, there is a lot of information packed in about the life and times of various creatures in and around its habitat, and the information pages at the end also fill in some gaps.
- The colourful illustrations add a dash of humour to the story.
- The writing, however, is a little tedious – more telling than showing.
