Mambi and the Forest Fire

 
Mambi is a shy little monkey who adores her older jungle friends. If only she could be more like Koko the crow, or Tonga the turtle! Then one day, a terrifying danger befalls the forest. Can Mambi overcome all her fears and save her friends? Beautifully told, with charming artwork, Mambi and the Forest Fire is a heartwarming adventure about discovering your own strengths, and celebrating the unique gifts that make every child special.


"Mambi and the Forest Fire is a must read for all children as well as parents, who will thoroughly enjoy not only the rich language used to create a wonderful story, but also enjoy the beautiful illustrations." 

- Fiza Pathan 

 

"Nandana Dev Sen crafts a delightfully uplifting story for children to remind the little ones that being different is more than okay."

"Mambi And The Forest Fire is a gorgeous picture  book... an excellent story to read out loud. The plot is simple, so it is easy to follow in a group reading, but there is also enough drama and suspense to keep the kids hooked."

- Kanika G's Books,  July 2017
