Publisher's Summary

Raja, a golden brown stray mongrel, leads a carefree existence in Shivaji Park, spending his days lying under shady trees and chasing tennis balls. His friend Pakya, a white and black mongrel, happens to be the most feared dog on this side of the park. But, poor Pakya secretly pines for Bianca, a beautiful Golden Retriever, who only has eyes for Hero, a smooth-talking mongrel with a red scarf round his neck.
Tiger Gondhlekar, aka Gattu, an abandoned Labrador who is perpetually hungry, completes the trio. Prashant Pinge's engaging and heartwarming story, depicts the journey of three ordinary stray dogs from Shivaji Park in Mumbai to Sambhaji Park in Pune. Their reasons for undertaking the journey are different, but they are united by their friendship and a common dream, as they confront seemingly insurmountable odds. While the story charts their quest for the giant donut, it also highlights how the dogs overcome their own shortcomings, support each other and register personal victories along the way.

An Awesome Adventure

"Raja & the Giant Donut" was beyond cute! I listened to the story twice. Once with my granddaughter who loved it and once again with my two cats and Great Dane. We were all thoroughly engrossed. I think this was a true gem. It was a terrific journey for all ages as well as animals. Written by Prashant Pinge, this was a true hit in my house.

Leonor A. Woodworth's performance was outstanding. She has an absolutely warm and soothing voice that made for a top notch listen. Her voice inflections were perfect along with her tone. Very enjoyable and one of my favorite audiobooks.

Adventure and Friendship

Any additional comments?

Cute, fun and entertaining.

Raja and pals set out on a journey to find the worlds largest donut. They each take the journey for different reasons. (with a little nudge from Raja) The 3 friends set out on their adventure and along the way encounter a variety of characters and situations. Some of their adventures include a monkey, a pack of unfriendly dogs, escaping the dog catchers, a stolen vehicle and more.

The heart of the story is about friendship. Each dog learns something and shares something as they work together to reach their goal.

Great book for a road trip with kids.
