The monsoon has failed in Yellaiah's village, and everything is dry and dusty. One day, Yella finds a kite. It is a wish-fulfilling kite, says Rajamma the fruit-seller. Soon, all his friends are making wishes – for bangles, a school bag, a full meal... Set in rural Andhra, this is a moving story about dreams and fears, matched by tender pictures that explore the innocence and vulnerability of children.

A touching story of brotherly love and hope
Set in a small village in Andhra Pradesh, a place that has been brought to life by the author with her evocative words, and the iillustrator, with his deft brush strokes. We see lush green paddy fields, the fruit vendor selling the local produce, the tall peepal tree and almost hear the tinkling of the bell around the old, abandoned cow's neck go tangu, tingu, tangu. Not only that, we also experience the sorrows of the villagers when the monsoon fails and drought conditions prevail. Youngindiabooks.com
