Danger! That's what the digital butterflies seem to be spelling out. There is a Word eater at large who snatches words as soon as they are uttered and makes them disappear. The 'monster' turns out to be just a little boy. Otto, Grendel's cousin

A bold trend

When the author is a feminist, this part adventure, part fantasy tale is more than just a book: It's a bold trend in children's literature… Aditi is Indian, wears salwar-kameez and plaits her hair. (This is how illustrator Shefalee Jain imagined her). However, Aditi is not in a limiting/closed 'Indian' world. Like any child in the world, she too has desires to know more, about the worlds and peoples and creatures of distant lands. Boloji.com
