Travel to the gorgeous pink city of Jaipur in India in this lively sequel to Bye, Bye, Motabhai!

The beautiful city of Jaipur is rejoicing. The Maharajah and his people, all dressed in their best, are getting ready to welcome the Emir from faraway Dubai. But behind all the music, dancing, and gaiety, there is something very strange going on…Why is a runaway camel stalking the royal guest in and around the forts and palaces of Jaipur? Why is he being helped by an odd bunch of friends–a faithful donkey, a chatty parrot, two resourceful monkeys, and one clever boy? And who is that mysterious man following them with a very grumpy expression on his face?

The sequel to Bye, Bye, Motabhai!, set in the historic city of Jaipur in Rajasthan, India, continues the comedic adventures of a runaway camel and a happy-go-lucky donkey in their attempt to travel to Dubai.


Praise for Bye, Bye, Motabhai!
