A little girl wants a story that never ends. Grandmother starts off a chain story typical of folk tales the world over. The old man from Madikere comes to Bengaluru, the old man's wife, her daughter, the daughter's doll, the doll's dog . . . And then in a clever twist, again typical of the genre, it fuses into another story and comes full circle — so it can never end! Bold, stylised illustrations zoom into the story from unusual perspectives.

The predictable pattern with the unpredictable twists and newnes

The seamless transition from one story into another back to the real-time world. Author Ashwini Bhat cleverly manages to squeeze in two different stories in one, without making it look forced or too much. Ajji’s voice is consistently taut and funny in a matter-of-fact style of storytelling. Snugglewithpicturebooks.com
