As well as translating the children’s stories, Mona can also be credited with translating the stories directly on youtube and the entire BoodleBobs website.

Without her dedication and attention to detail, the Hindi version of this site would not have been possible.  She is a legend

Mona writes her own poetry and blog under the name of Manic Sylph, which is an air-fairy, an intangible wisp who loves to plant stars in everyone’s night sky.
