Twins, Anara and Samal, love to travel with their mom and little brother, Oliver. Having a mom that works for UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, means the family gets to travel to the coolest places. Sometimes their dad or their grandma from Finland, Vovo, are able to tag along and visit the most amazing places.
India is totally better than spending all summer at camp. Traveling through busy citifies and India s countryside, the Nylund s experience rickshaws, spicy foods, and, Ollie s favorite, history. Things get complicated when the kids encounter the many homeless children, mistreatment of Anara s beloved elephants, and 13 hour surprise trip. Can the Nylunds survive India s hot, humid weather? Will they make it through the mountains to the Valley of Flowers? Can they help all the homeless children wandering in India?
