A luminous, magical read-aloud or read-alone book

Yoking together curiosity and the imagination of a child of 6-plus, Avanti Mehta’s text takes us on a walk through seasons, through cycles of growth, and through ways of re-imagining. En route, we acquire alternate lenses through which to perceive the ordinary. And we hold our breath as the mundane becomes magical with every page we turn. Mulledink.blogspot.in
