This storybook stole my heart away. Wonderful story with amazing comic timing, hilarious illustrations with funny twists and turns.

The story is based on the only woman ruler of Delhi, Razia Sultan. How she managed to rule a kingdom besides all odds and demotivation from certain people. She is being sent pesky presents and soppy poems challenging her to rule but she is determined to find the culprit and solve the mystery.

The comic timing and humor in the story is too funny not and causes uncontrollable laughter. The dialogues are really waggish and humorous.

The funny characters and their hilarious ridiculous acts make the story all the more enjoyable and gripping. Children would not want to leave the book until they finish it.

After all need to know the culprit who sends the pesky presents.

Vocabulary and sentence construction in the story is quite refined.
