About the Author

ROOPA Pal is a computer engineer who always knew she was going to write for children. She is the author of Taranauts, India's first complete fantasy-adventure series for children, and has several other published books to her credit. She brings together three other loves - history, working with young people, and her home town Bengaluru - in her day job as a guide with Bangalore Walks, a history and heritage walks and tours company.

She is currently hard at work trying to earn the right to this epitaph: She was often content.

SAYAN MUKHERJEE works as an art director at a leading advertising agency. Besides work, he loves to dabble in paints and colours. He has illustrated several children's books, including for Tulika and Penguin Random House (Moon Mountain, 2014 - his dream graphic novel project since childhood). He is very passionate about his art and carries his sketchbook wherever he goes. He has currently moved back to his hometown Kolkata after a few years in Bengaluru.
