This thrilling graphic novel recreates the classic tale of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves from the Arabian Nights in contemporary times.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Born in the steel city of Jamshedpur, Poulomi Mukherjee's introduction to the world of fantasy was through various folklores, fairytales, and mythological stories that she grew up hearing or reading. All this infused in her the desire to create her own stories. Ideas turned to scribbles, scribbles to sentences, finally flowing together to shape up as short stories. Her first piece of writing was for Voices in The Statesman. She also worked as a copywriter and brand communication person. Poulomi now works with a leading media group and pursues various other creative writing projects as well.ABOUT THE ARTIST: AMIT TAYAL - Ever since he was nine years old, he knew he wanted to be an artist.
