Brings the sensuous delicacy of storytelling into a book.

The Magical Fish is an absolute aesthetic delight, simple and profound; moving and brave... a book that should turn into a treasured family heirloom. The Magical Fish is that you can hear the story as you read it. The artwork by Shakuntala Kushram is nothing short of stunning, and not just because it is in the traditional art form of the Bhitti Chitra... There is something fantastic about the way that the art and words of this story weave in and out of each other with such ease and simplicity. Goodbooks.in
