Mangu Mali and Ambia Bhoot is the third in the Kallu's World series of books written by Subhadra Sen Gupta . Our spirited heroine Munia, Kallu's sister, decides to get the better of Mangu Mali who guards the heavenly smelling dusseri mangoes with his life. All day he sits there smiling into his moustache while challenging all mango chors as he maintains that at night the Ambia bhoot guards the tree. What happens next is a hilarious riot that the children of Pratham will enact for you. Whether you like dusseri mangoes or are partial to bhoot tales, either way you will have a belly laugh!
