Resisting the absolute dominance of English is vital work, and Tulika does that work with charm and humour.”

“Apart from breathtaking illustrations, the book explores colors in a new and fantastic light.... This book is filled with possibilities … unusual details and pictures but perfectly plausible in a child’s fantastical world!”

Gajapati Kulapati Kalicha

“It’s been four years since we saw India’s most adorable elephant … Ashok Rajagopalan brings him trumpeting back into our homes with much fanfare and charm!… We also love that the cow in the book says ‘mbaa’ instead of ‘moo’!

“When one of the greatest children’s writers in India writes about one of the greatest musicians in India and you have one of India’s most celebrated artists illustrate the book, then you simply HAVE to pick up that book!... The best part of the book is the rhythm and the bols that pulsate through the story.”

“Throughout the book the author shares facts about Ramanujan in interesting ways by narrating them as small, funny situations and moments. Can you imagine a world famous mathematician failing in all other subjects and not getting a good job?... I would recommend this book to all young readers and anybody with big dreams.”

Ammama's Sari

“Each character is beautifully portrayed: the father, the child, the baby, and the cats. Each of them is a part of the storyline, which is beautifully woven around recycling, in this short and nice story.”
