Do roosters sing ragas? This one does but like all true artistes discovers it after a lot of struggle! Every time he opens his mouth he has a new tune but not the kukaroo-kuroo of the other roosters. His friends skip and stretch, stamp and roll and try to teach him. Try as he might our rooster kuka-moooooos, kuka-heeen haaans, kuka-miaooows but can't kukaroo-kuroo. This cheery, foot-tapping story invites big and little readers to move and sing, clap and tap along with Priya Kuriyan's expressive characters.

Would strongly recommend!

The way each animal moves its body while making the sound is described, it was an absolute delight for me to read it aloud to the brat and made me wonder about the super observation power of the author to notice how animals move when they make sounds! Toka Box

Sure to delight and entertain children everywhere!

A visual treat with its brilliant colours, great layout and minimal text! On the surface, the story is bright, effervescent and fun, but deep down it conveys an all-important message to children - It is alright to be different. Shamim Padamsee, Young India Books

A heart warming affirmation of selfhood

Natasha Sharma and Priya Kuriyan walk you through a delightful swirl of words and colors, as Ruru traipses the neighborhood, trying to understand the songness of songs... Concluding in a heart-warming affirmation of selfhood, and celebrating not only heterogeneity but also the ability to learn new things, albeit in one’s own special way, Rooster Raga reminds its readers that life, like music, is entirely about community; and belonging to a community is not about being a clone... (Priya Kurian's) art work is clean and expressive, complementing the simplicity of the story in just the right ways. Goodbooks.in
