About the Book
Jugar (joogar), n. The uniquely Indian concept, hard to translate, of inventively using whatever is at hand in order to get the job done.
Jugar is a young puppy living on the streets of a market in India. He is so young that all he knows is hot, dry weather—he has never seen the rainy season. He ignores the kind warnings of his friends Cow, Camel, and Monkey, and gets into trouble when it starts to rain.
He meets a young boy, and thanks to this boy’s creativity (or jugar), they both make it safely through the Monsoon.
