Rattu and Poorie’s Adventures in History

Rattu and Poorie’s Adventures in History



'Come along, then,' said Lakshmi Bai and Jhalkari Bai.
'Come along and listen.'
Rattu is in a bad, mad mood. Her bossy older sister, Poorie, has taken her toys and gone off to play without her. Rattu has made ghastly faces at everyone: Roundy the cat, Shanti the cook and Mama as well. But none of this makes her feel any better.

She wishes she had a soldier to protect her and take her side. No sooner does she make the wish than the ground begins to shake-and suddenly, there's not one, but two soldiers in the room!

So begin Rattu and Poorie's grand adventures in the Uprising of 1857, and their encounters with its heroes: from Rani Lakshmi bai of Jhansi and Nana Sahib of Kanpur to the last Mughal Emperor, Bahadur Shah Zafar.
