In the village of Shaktipur wells are drying up and crops are failing. The Chelo

children, Sunita and Rakesh, go to the river every day with Mango the elephant so
Grandma can water her garden with help from Jalebi the monkey. It’s a climate
crisis, and a greedy land developer is circling like a vulture to buy up farms at
bargain prices. The children discover ways to harvest rainwater. But can they save
the whole village against all odds?
This book is part of a series that introduces important environmental issues to
young readers, such as water pollution, conservation of endangered species,
recycling, the harmful impact of pesticides and deforestation.
