A boy who doesn’t stop talking, furry cats and clacking needles... Shobha has a dream every night, but she always wakes up before they end. How do these dreams end? She really has to know. “Write them down,” says English Miss. And that’s what Shobha does. “The more she wrote, the more she wrote, and the more she wrote. She wrote and wrote.” The interplay of dreams and reality finds a visual echo in pictures, which turn rich and bold as the dream writer takes off on her flights of fancy.

There is a folktale feel to the story
This is one of those picture books where the illustrations are very much part of the story. In fact, from one particular illustration, we suddenly learn a lot of things about Shobha, about where she comes from. The illustration took me by surprise and gave a certain poignancy to Shobha’s quest. Goodbooks.in
Poignant and intriguing
A picture book plot in the hands of a great children's writer can sometimes pen itself - and this one probably did exactly that with its awe-inspiringly simple and clever pen-oriented theme. The slightly poignant touch added to the pictures reveals a parallel thread that the reader sees unfolding - a hidden story element that does not needlessly parade pity, but one that speaks the state as is and deserves five stars for the not-at-all-heavy handling of it... delightfully funny images...Saffron Tree
