Little Nonnu's world revolves around her goat, Appaka. Soft as cotton, Appaka loves to munch on jackfruit leaves and play with Nonnu and her friends. One day, Nonnu returns home from school to find Appaka missing! What will she do without her best friend? Set in Kerala, the story is full of evocative glimpses of a child's everyday life. The uplifting pictures, with their bright palette, capture the bond between Appaka and Nonnu with affection.

A story about deep compassion

The author manages to weave sorrow into this pretty story with remarkable authenticity. When we discover that Nonnu’s father is no more, it struck me as a message of courage... Appaka is also a story about deep compassion, and the kind of unconditional bond that children form with animals... there is a certain ripeness to it, of a simple love that reaches far beyond places we imagine possible.
