Out Of The Way! Out Of The Way!/Rasta Soad! Rasta Soad! (Marathi)

Author : Uma Krishnaswami
Illustrator : Uma Krishnaswamy

A dusty path runs through a village where people and animals keep walking up and down, up and down. Others, on faster feet and wheels, shout “Out of the way, out of the way.” In a simple lyrical way, the author subverts commonly held views on environment and development by showing simultaneously the growth of a wide-spreading tree and a busy winding road, with each making room for the other. 2021: Selected for United Nations Sustainable Development Goal's Reading List 2013: Outstanding International Book, United States Board on Books for Young People, USA

A lovely, unique contribution

A boy in India sees a baby tree growing by the side of a dusty path, and, because he protects it, it flourishes throughout his lifetime despite the changes to the landscape around him. Krishnaswami’s spare text tracks the tree’s growth over time, with the titular refrain “Out of the way! Out of the way!” giving voice to those who hurry past it. Kirkusreviews.com
