The jungle of India is awesome—where beauty and mortal danger walk hand in hand. Rajah—the mighty tiger—is being hunted by man for his beautiful coat. Each attempt is thwarted by the resourceful animals of the jungle. As man is determined with each foiled attempt, will the animals be able to outwit man’s treacherous plots to keep their friend and ruler safe?
Rajah may be possessed of immense strength, but he is impetuous and careless. He often has to be saved by resourceful and brave humbler members of the jungle, such as the squirrel Lil Squi and the jungle mouse Chuhi. They’re joined by Hathi, Loombar, Magar and others.
