“We were late. We were running in the street. We had played in the river, and we had climbed trees...” Everything Amma had said NOT to do!

Proiti Roy’s joyous pictures light up the bond between a boy and a dog. Woven into this story of everyday fun are sensory descriptions, and visual details like a walking stick in the boy’s hand or pocket, the dog guiding his friend... clues that gently tell us that the boy is blind.

Celebrates self-confidence and independence

Sensitively written and illustrated, the book speaks volumes as the only indication of the disability is depicted by the red/white cane that Thambi is holding. The message, subtly woven into the story, is loud and clear and that being blind (or disabled in any other way) need not be a deterrent to enjoying oneself. Young India Books

Normalising the state of blindness

Lavanya Karthik’s text and Proiti Roy’s artwork come together wonderfully, and both are an integral part of the narrative. In fact, this book is one of those gems that rekindles your faith in the power of a picture book. - Goodbooks, goodbooks.in

Evocative and minimal text

“…the text is minimal, lucid and evocative, rather than didactic. The illustration fans out the full intention of the text, something that young readers simply delight in.” — Priyanka Bhattacharya, The Book Review, November 2018

Vibrant Artwork

The text is minimal, the details are in the illustrations... Anybody who thought picture books couldn’t have twists will be surprised, as there is more than one here. Goodbooks.in
