This book is about a little boy of ten, Gagan, who lives in the city of Calcutta with his parents. His grandmother lives in a village by the forest and runs a small hospital for the animals. The jungle animals instinctively love and trust Amma, and limp over to the hospital whenever one of them in wounded or unwell. A naughty but affectionate monkey, a parrot, a rabbit, a baby deer, a peacock, a fox and a cow elephant are some of the patients Gagan meets at his grandmother’s clinic. Gagan is enchanted with the animals and Amma’s jungle hospital. A charming story of animals and human beings, the book will delight children as well as help them understand the need for conserving wildlife and forests.
