Award-winning writer Mini Shrinivasan bases her narrative on true events, and speaks in Manna’s voice to take us into her mind. That’s how we move closer to understanding her guileless, trusting responses that are so different from the usual. The uncluttered yet emotive pictures movingly echo Manna’s told-as-it-is account of what she can and cannot understand.

A strong and joyful character

Very beautifully and subtly, she has posed the important and sensitive question of the self-identity of mentally challenged children. The Book Review Journal

I didn't understand!

This is about three things I loved about the book - 1. the beautiful form of the narrative, 2. the warm hug, 3. the pictures, especially the cover page.
