Captain Coconut : And the Case of the Missing Bananas Hardback
Illustrated by Priya Sundram
Ace Detective Captain Coconut, who proclaims he can solve any mystery large or small, is called in to investigate the case of the missing bananas.
He soon finds himself on a slippery trail of peels and missing numbers. Anushka Ravishankar, India's best known writer of nonsense verse, is at her best in this absurd yet logical tale, which gently satirises the very form that it uses.
British-Indian artist Priya Sundram's collage art serves as a perfect fit to Ravishankar's text: it brings together elements of popular Indian imagery, drawn from advertising, the movies, newspapers and interior decor, to create a delightful world that is at once hilarious and founded.
