the parts played by animals keeping in the theme of the book The Chimpanzee can never be eual to a human no matter how successful as he has no pedigreeThe black white watercolor and ink based artwork is interesting The fact that the book is printed on handmade coarse paper makes it stand our form the other graphic novels A delightful read This is the story of Sudershan the chimpanzee who migrates to India with his family during the world war from the ungles of Africa He starts off working at the circus and then when the smell of Bollywood movies makes for a good meal he tries his hand at the movies from a very low level This is the time when all sorts of animals are in big demand and are given roles of high stature Full of dark humour and partly in Hindi this book is a smart piece of black comedy by Rajesh Devraj and Meren Imchen I stumbled upon this book while looking for a suita.
