Bala-Gala the Brave and Dangerous is a bed time story for kids, and also a first-read for early readers.
Bala-Gala lives in the forest of Gamba-Bamba, and must save himself from the crocodile, Brammy-Gommy, who lives in the River Kanga.
But who is Bala-Gala? Is he is deer, a tiger, a dinosaur, or a dragon? The answer will delight kids, as will the story.
This is a tale to tickle the imagination of every child.

Even though this book says for children ages 3-6 A didn't seem to like it so I read it to K who is 9 and enjoyed it.
We really had fun learning who exactly Bala-Gala really was especially when his mom calls him inside after it starts raining. K told me that a dragon does not have clothes and this should be changed because it doesn't sound right. He said the author should use the dragon shook the water off of him. 
I really liked how there was imagination used within the story and it has children think to use their imaginations as well. 
It was really fun to rhyme with Bala-Gala's name and him changing into different animals. 
I think children will enjoy this story just a bit older than three.
