The World Of Goopi And Bagha

Goopi loves to sing (badly) and Bagha loves to the play the drum (badly too). When the villagers cannot bear to listen to them anymore, both are banished to the forest. They manage to enchant the king of ghosts, who gives them four boons: they can always be well fed, transport themselves anywhere in an instant and mesmerise anyone with their music, with the fourth boon to be granted when they need it. And thus begin the extraordinary adventures of Goopi and Bagha!
