When Balu finds a basket lying on the road, he doesn’t realise how useful it will turn out to be!

From catching the egg-seller’s runaway chickens to shielding his friend from the pouring rain, there’s nothing that this deceptively ordinary basket can’t fix! 🐥🌧 What’s more — every time Balu helps someone, they give him a juicy fruit in return.

By the end of his journey, how many fruits will Balu collect? 🍈🍊🍌

With bright, clean pictures and a cheerful backdrop, this is an innovative story that shows a child coming up with different ways to use a simple household object. It also conveys the important message that a helping hand is always appreciated!
