History Hunters: Chandragupta Maurya and the Greek Onslaught Kindle Edition
What would YOU do if you found yourself in a whole new world 2,350 years ago?
in Goa, four friends - Zoya, Noor, Ansh and Rohan - and their super-adorable elephant companion Elfu are suddenly flung back two millennia. Right into a bloody battlefield as Alexander of Macedonia marches into India!
As a young man comes to their rescue and takes them to his teacher's school in Takshashila, the flabbergasted foursome has no choice but to deal with non-stop challenges on the way, including villainous soldiers, deadly snakes and floating buffalo carcasses!
Faced with surprises and dangers, how will the youngsters get away? Can they avoid getting lost forever in another era? Will they beat the ticking clock to return to their own times?
Join the feisty and funny History Hunters on their first adventure in the thrilling - and sometimes chilling - world of Chandragupta Maurya, the future emperor, and Chanakya, the kingmaker.
PLUS! 24-PAGE FACT TRACKER
Must-know information about the Mauryan period!

Four children Zoya, Eknoor, Ansh and Rohan along with Rohan's pet elephant Elfu are magically transported to the past and meet a young Chandragupta Maurya who is learning the skills that he needs from his guru Chanakya.
They witnessed Alexander's victory over Porus.
Then they travelled to Takshashila together where they witnessed amazing things from the past.
This book makes the past come alive. We see how people actually lived in the past from the food they ate to the clothes they wore.
Anyone from young to old will enjoy this book which is beautifully illustrated by Priya Kuriyan.
At the end of the book a Fact Tracker gives the History of this period in a concise way.
History Hunters is the story about 4 children and a pet elephant(!) who are transported to ancient India.
It’s an engaging story - I picked it up to get a gist and ended up reading it cover to cover…
What I liked most was the concluding remarks on fact vs fiction - so that the reader knows where the authors have taken creative liberties!
Can’t wait for Book 2…
Both Shruti and Archana have done a wonderful job of weaving the past and the present minds of children in an imaginative way along with their beloved Elephant.
Great for both parents and kids to take them back to history and make it fun and adventurous !
Not only that but the historical content at the end is a great way to add to the facts of history and create curiosity
Look forward to many more escapades!
For adults. the book is the perfect way to revisit India’s history. It is a fun read that breezes through the early life of Chandragupta Maurya without getting bogged down in details. Nevertheless it provides insights into his character and his training under Chanakya which is often missed out in history books.
