Stories in Champak are set in a unique forest, Champakvan. Champa is an evergreen fragrant tree and van means forest. Great adventure lies in every page, waiting to take children on a wild and exciting ride. Everyone in this forest treats the other with respect, kindness, sensitivity and most importantly—they value friendship.Shersingh the Lion: Always dressed fashionably, he is the king of the jungle and takes his responsibilities very seriously. He is a defender of free speech. Loved by all the animals, he is just and fair, but can get angry very quickly, at times is stubborn and also jumps to conclusions. But he is quick to realise his mistakes and there is humour and a message of togetherness in his stories. Shersingh brings out the kind leader we all would like to be.
