Karimuga is a rakshasa, a pleasant rakshasa. He is a beautiful rakshasa too. But that makes all other rakshasas jealous of him. Karimuga can't bear to see them unhappy... Sowmya Rajendran inverts our ideas about beauty, happiness and rakshasas with humour and a light touch. Niveditha's quirky pictures have little and big rakshasas romp through the pages, in pinks and purples, blues and greens, adding to the fun.

A visual treat

The book is a visual treat in an off beat sense- the cute monsters ( remember Five Little Fiends) , the vivid colours, the finger print art in places, all tie in beautifully with a story about generosity and the common good. Saffrontree.org
