What I liked about the book

1. The fact that King Akbar has someone else apart from Birbal to solve mysteries :)

2. The story line, which left me totally admiring the author’s imagination

3. The detailing in the book. How the King actually went for a hunt, the food the King ate (which left me hungry :) ) and the actual description of incidents with the super six which made me laugh aloud

4. The illustrations are apt and not over the top.

5. The simple English which makes it easy to read without compromising on the language.

The story, which snakes its way through the foolish Super Six’s investigations, captures the mood of the royal era.

The language is simple and suitable for younger readers. The story moves at a good pace and takes you right into the scene with its descriptions of sounds and other details. The skill of the author along with the familiarity factor with Akbar and his times doesn’t make the information forced…
