Summary

Four stories set in India, about the Prince Veera and his friend Suku.

Prince Veera and his best friend, Suku, are left in charge of King Beema's court when the king goes off on a hunting trip. Each day the king's subjects come before the boys with their problems and petty disagreements.

Can Veera and Suku settle the dispute between the man who sells a well, but not the water in it, to his neighbour? Or solve the mystery of the jewels that have turned into pickles?

And what about the old washerwoman who is set the task of washing the king's elephants until they turn white?

These clever, funny trickster tales, full of humour and colour, are sure to delight.
