Pouting and shouting – that’s what Anya has been doing ever since her baby brother came along. Because he is a “special child”, her mother says, and needs special care all the time. And Anya is fed up. Then along comes a butterfly – no, a butterbeing! – who takes her up into the clouds, where she sees how a bit of this and a bit of that is mixed together so that every child is special. Anya too!

From one of the best known writers of India comes this highly original picture book on inclusiveness. With a bit of sci-fi, a bit of humour, a large bit of inventiveness, and cheerful pictures that bring it all together.

Depicting disability in children’s books

Being an ally does not come spontaneously to everyone. Learning to put someone else’s needs before one’s own can create resentment. Allyship is often work in progress; it demands reflection and making amends. This idea is developed in a children’s book titled Anya and Her Baby Brother (2019), written by Jerry Pinto, illustrated by Maithili Joshi, and published by Tulika Publishers.
