Book review:

A tigress Called Machhli is a collection of 30 profound short stories of extraordinary animals. Most of them are inspired by author’s travel stories all talking about animals. Ordinary yet bizarre. You might’ve heard of few while others never known before. The book is non-fictional and highly enjoyable. Once you start reading you’ll be on the urge to know about each and every other animal mentioned in the book.

Efforts and research of the author is seen in the form of fun narration, easy read and every informative facts that she has added in the book.

Recommended for both kids and adults. Read this highly amusing and witty book to know about the crocodile who eats rice, a brave mule, vegetarian jackal, monitor lizards helping soldiers, 25,000 rats called kabbas believed to be sons of goddess, the tigress who’s known as undisputed queen of Ranthambhore and many others.
