About the Book: 

More Adventures of Kakababu is the second book in the delightful Kakababu series.

In 'Terror on the Mountain Top', Kakababu travels to the Everest base camp, ostensibly to climb the peak. But after finding a corpse, a hidden glacial crevice, and an enormous prehistoric tooth in rapid succession, Shontu begins to suspect that his uncle has, once again, not been honest about the true reason behind his visit.

'The Mystery of the Deserted Ship' finds uncle and nephew afloat in the treacherous waters off the Sunderbans islands. Stubbornly secretive as always, Kakababu refuses to tell Shontu what brought him into the predator-infested mangrove jungle or to the deserted ship. Will Shontu survive his brush with the dangerous delta? And what secrets will he find there?

Originally written by veteran Bengali writer Sunil Gangopadhyay, these Bengali classics have been translated by Rimi.
