New Delhi, Jun 25 (PTI) A new children's book, narrating the story of a youngster on an adventure-filled journey, has been released with the option to be personalised in any three different locations from Iceland, Turkey, Egypt, Mongolia, Bolivia, and the Western Ghats.

“The Unusual Adventures of a Gutsy Explorer”, published by Merlinwand, is an illustrated tale of an inventive youngster from a picturesque Indian village who has a longing to go on unusual and exciting adventures in different parts of the world. It is written by author and teacher Pujita Krishna, and illustrated by Bengali artist Abira Das.

"The fancy-free, young protagonist in my story with a thirst for adventure, pretty much materialized on its own! The travels to far off destinations were a semi-deliberate attempt to also educate the young readers about lands and cultures they may be unfamiliar with, in a fun way, without seeming to be instructive. The bigger challenge though was to write it all out in verse and have it fall into place without any loose ends," said the author.
