Solve the Mystery with Ashwin and Rashi.
Ashwin’s little sister Rashi is plain annoying. She’s decided to follow Ashwin around everywhere. While visiting Rajasthan, Ashwin starts seeing things, and Rashi smells a mystery. But is Ashwin faking it, or are his visions true?

My Review of Royals of Rajasthan

Royals of Rajasthan reminded me of Satyajit Ray’s Sonar Kella (The Golden Fortress), a Feluda mystery. In fact, the author’s note does mention Feluda as one of her writing influences.

A family vacation in Rajasthan snowballs into a serious problem when Ashwin has an odd experience. His parents are worried enough to seek help.

The hand-drawn illustrations are the best part of the book. They add a personal touch to the story. The author has drawn them herself. (How talented can one person be?)

Children will love the drama and the suspense of this quick read. The author does a good job of describing a typical family vacation with shopping, food, and sightseeing.

I can barely wait to know what happens in the next book.

  1. You can get a free copy from the Healthwealthbridge website. The link is in my post. 🙂

  2. Visions and Rajasthan do remind of Sonar Kila. I had loved that book. Would also give this one a go.
