Question 3: Why were the children disappointed?
Answer: The children were disappointed because their mother did not allow them to accompany Younguncle to their ancestral village to visit ancient uncle.
Question 4: What did Yusuf want Younguncle to do?
Answer: Younguncle’s friend Yusuf, was worried about the ‘Neelamgiri National Santuary’. The forest rangers he had appointed to look after it were leaving after a week without telling him why and Yusuf wanted Younguncle to look into ‘Neelamgiri National Sanctuary’.
Question 5: What gifts did Younguncle promise to bring back? Do you think he got all the gifts he promised to bring back?
Answer: Younguncle promised to bring mangoes for two older children and a hair from the tip of tiger’s tail for baby. No, I don’t think he got all the gifts promised to bring back.
Question 6: The mangoes from the village were the best in the known universe. This means the children felt the mangoes were the best. Why is the phrase ‘known universe’ used?
Answer: The phrase ‘known universe’ is used for the village or town in which they were living because they don’t know much beyond their village. Their village mangoes were the best for them and they were unknown about the rest of the world.
Question 7: Younguncle said, “What long faces!” What are long faces? Why did the children have long faces? What could be the opposite of long faces?
Answer: Long faces are disappointed faces. The children had long faces because their mother didn’t allow them to go to the village with their Younguncle. The opposite of long faces is ‘small/dull faces’.
