The events of this story unfold in India in the middle ages. A little Princess from a noble Kingdom is kidnapped by a mysterious forest creature. Her father, King Raja, and his faithful commander Sikh go in search of her. Impassable jungles, mangroves, mountain rivers, wild animals and magic await them on the way to the mysterious Spruce Forest. In the role of antagonists are the well-known archetypes of Slavic mythology, the history of which, according to one version, began in India.
The niche of modern oriental fairytale combined with philosophical adventure was free, and armed with a pencil, paper and creative imagination, I assumed the responsibility to act as a children’s writer in this genre. Thanks to my Russian-Indian heritage and time spent living in both Russia and India, I managed to absorb the cultures of two completely different and at the same time very similar civilizations, which is reflected in depth in the events and character of this tale.
