9780143333289: Puffin Classics: The Mystery of Munroe Island and Other Stories

Join Professor Trilokeshwar Shonku, eccentric genius and scientist, on an incredible world tour as he confronts a daring doppelganger, undertakes an experiment to create pure gold, unravels the mystery of a scientist s loss of memory and visits an unknown island to look for an amazing fruit, amongst other escapades. What is the message in the mysterious papyrus found in Cairo and why did scientists go missing in the deep jungle of Congo? Is there any truth about the sightings of the UFO and what happens when he takes an extraordinary animal to Koblenz in Germany? Featuring the indomitable Professor Shonku and a bunch of madcap characters, this brilliant new translation brings alive the magic and charm of Satyajit Ray s imaginative world.

About the Author:

Satyajit Ray (1921-92) was one of the greatest film-makers of his time. In 1992, he was awarded the Oscar for Lifetime Achievement by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. In the same year he was also honoured with the Bharat Ratna. Ray was also a writer of repute, and his short stories, novellas, poems and articles, written in Bengali, have been immensely popular. He is also the author of the famous Feluda stories, the translations of which are available in Penguin. Indrani Majumdar lives in Delhi but has her roots firmly based in Bengali culture. Her bilingualism has helped her career as she has translated Bengali texts into English and vice versa.
