Suraj is the main character in all four adventurous stories about wanting to become famous. He relates to children by sharing experiences similar to theirs: overcoming loneliness, surmounting disappointment or loss, using intuition, collaborating with others to solve a problem or to follow their dreams. Each story contains drama, excitement, and the meaning of enduring friendship (albeit between a South American parrot and an Indian elephant). The stories will delight adult readers as well as children who can read and those who enjoy being read to. Some events reflect the author's own life experience, such as piloting helicopters and taking part in a search mission. Lavish illustrations augment the stories, playfully inviting the reader into following the storyline on another wondrous level.
