Synopsis

Synopsis

Ali Baba's life was far from fantastic. A small house in the poorest part of Mumbai, a loving son, and his own autorickshaw - that was his world...
'Till one day, he accidentally stumbles upon the secret stash of a gang of forty thieves. What follows is a storm that changes his life completely. One little dip into the pile, and Ali Baba brings on more trouble than he had bargained for, as he finds that the robbers aren't ones to take things lightly. They are dangerous, armed, and cunning. And while Ali Baba himself isn't a greedy man, the secret doesn't stay with him...
This thrilling graphic novel recreates the classic tale of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves from the Arabian Nights in contemporary times.
Praise

Praise

The classic tale is newly dressed up as a graphic novel and transferred to modern Mumbai. Hewing fairly closely to the original’s storyline, Mukherjee casts Ali Baba as a cab driver, the clever slave girl who repeatedly saves his hide as an aspiring young dancer named Marjeena, and the thieves as heavily armed bank robbers in suits and shades. . . . A properly melodramatic rendition that doesn’t take itself too seriously." Kirkus Reviews

"I highly recommend Campfire’s comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in  a way that excites kids about classic literature." — Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians)

"Handled [the violence] perfectly.... Wonderful, with a modern appeal that will please tween and teen audiences." — Jennifer, No Flying No Tights
