In Priya Sundram’s excellent illustrations and Anushka Ravishankar’s peppy dialogues, the setting is tropical, the colours are bright and the Captain, very funny.- Blink, The Hindu BusinessLine

We have all enjoyed this original book which has a distinctive illustrative style, lyrical prose and humour – but it is Captain Coconut we have all fallen for. - Overdue Books blog

Captain Coconut is a joy from start to finish, rarely have we read a book that has made us laugh so much, or endeared us so quickly to the lead character. This is the first book in the Captain Coconut series and we cannot wait to see what mystery he is set to solve next. - The Illustrated Forest blog

Captain Coconut is a fun book about numbers and puzzles and the story is punctuated with adorable songs (try singing them to different tunes). At times it’s irreverent and at others, it will get young readers itching to shout out the answer. - The

The Book Review
Combining Anushka Ravishankar's effortless wit and high quality graphics, it is the first book in the Captain Coconut series and it has all the makings of a hit. The graphics in this book are richly playful and bring together many media with consummate skill. There are ‘quotes’ from different styles of expression and objects and elements leap out at you well past the first reading (example: Shakuntala Devi, the human calculator framed on the wall). - The Book Review

Anushka Ravishankar… cleverly combines logic with the absurd to make engaging reading. Priya Sundram's collage art is the perfect counter to the text and is a key part of the book. - Parents In Touch U.K.
