Deeply profound

“Rinchin and Manjari Chakravarti’s The Trickster Bird is a beautiful and very important story which narrows the chasm between ‘us’ and 'them’… The book is deeply profound without being sanctimonious and preachy.” - The Book Review, November 2016.

Sensitive, nuanced

The little book is poignant without being maudlin and is sure to evoke an emotional response in a reader, young or old, and make us question or at least become aware our prejudices and indifference, living as we do in an age of privilege and entitlement... The illustrations in The Trickster Bird match the complexity of the story. The drawings are moving and highlight the plight of those who live in poverty. Goodbooks.in
