Stony Lake, Canada, with laughing loons, sullen sunfish and dangerous deadheads — this is where Aditi and friends are off to this time. Their mission is a message for the Techno Sage. The Sage, however, has covered her island with a shield through which not even emails can penetrate. Dragons, a scientist sage, time-stretching jewels and a princess with an unusual assortment of friends, all come together in this techno-generation fantasy tale. But beneath the hi-tech trappings lie everyday issues of friendship and courage, dealt with in the author's inimitable style with sensitivity, sophistication and humour.

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
