The Story of Babur — The Beginnings 
~ Simran Lal

“While reading books to my two little boys and my young niece and nephew, I felt the need for books that told stories about India’s history through real historical events and people; stories about our jungles, rivers, animals, mythology and cultural history. 

I wanted to create books that ignite their curiosity about where we come from and who came before us. We start the series with the story of Babur, who was the founder of Mughal dynasty in India.


In a chatty style, the writer playfully adds jokes and pranks played by young Babur and the importance of relationships and duties of a young leader, while imparting historical events with its share of villains, heroes and battles! The gentle watercolour illustrations are influenced by Mughal miniatures and have been rendered in a modern, youthful style. 

Wishing all our readers many hours of happy reading! Dedicated to my four young readers who know it almost by heart — Raghav (who celebrates his 8th birthday today), Zarovar, Leila Noor and Arjuna.”
