Zai’s uncle is the famous 'birdman of India' Salim Ali, everyone in her family is a birding expert, and she herself can’t so much as identify the pipit sitting right under her nose. In this delightful portrait of childhood, Zai Whitaker recounts her early birding woes and how she winged it. Prabha Mallya’s pictures pick up the humour, and are an arresting collage of a bird-filled Bombay of the past, and a troubled little girl with a ‘superstar’ uncle!

A child-friendly books for adults as well

The book, then, is a delightfully narrated and superbly illustrated account of Zai Whitaker’s trials and tribulations as the niece of the bird man of India, the late Dr. Salim Ali. - Sonali Bhatia, Bengaluru Review, bengalurureview.com

Changing expressions beautifully captured

The illustrations…manage to beautifully capture changing expressions – sullen, concerned, joyous, hopeful and sad are among the myriad expressions that have been captured by her clever pen. The book is a great read for children and parents alike. - "The Book Review"

You must savour this book!

Whitaker’s writing style is conversational and wonderful. Prabha Mallya’s illustrations are quite brilliant and reinforce the story. littlekulture.in
