‘Razia and the pesky presents ‘ is a cute little book based on Razia Sultan- the first female ‘Sultan’ from the Delhi Sultanate ( in present-day India). 

During the times when Razia ruled, people were not used to seeing or accepting women as the head of the State. Despite the challenges, Razia ruled and did a good job at that. This book is a humorous take on Razia’s plight, as someone in the court, much to her dislike,  plays a prank on her by constantly sending her typical ‘ girly’ gifts. Razia is a ruler and doesn’t like to see herself as delicate or weak.  Razia doesn’t like this at all. She is a self-made woman and is bold enough to stand up for herself. She would not put up with anyone questioning her authority, leave aside, or making fun of it.  But here, Razia is helpless. Since the sender of the gifts is not known, Razia has no option other than to be irritated.  But are these gifts just to pull her leg and have fun, or do they have a message to convey? Are these gifts sent to remind her that she is a woman and that that probably, by being a ruler, she is doing something wrong? As the gifts keep coming, Razia becomes more and more restless. Ultimately, her extreme irritation and impatience lead her on a trail to find the mischief-maker.

The book is packed with witty lines and funny incidents, all making up for a good dose of laughter. Children will surely have a fun time reading it and, in the process, learn a bit of history too!
