Product Details

Praise

The classic tale is newly dressed up as a graphic novel and transferred to modern Mumbai. Hewing fairly closely to the original’s storyline, Mukherjee casts Ali Baba as a cab driver, the clever slave girl who repeatedly saves his hide as an aspiring young dancer named Marjeena, and the thieves as heavily armed bank robbers in suits and shades. . . . A properly melodramatic rendition that doesn’t take itself too seriously.” Kirkus Reviews

“I highly recommend Campfire’s comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in  a way that excites kids about classic literature.” — Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians)

“Handled [the violence] perfectly…. Wonderful, with a modern appeal that will please tween and teen audiences.” — Jennifer, No Flying No Tights
