Amidst jhamak-tamak sunsets and groves of Malgova mangoes, whirling winds and growling thunderheads, maxi taxis and leafy forests, meet a remarkable cast of two- and four-legged characters in 15 entertaining stories calling out to be heard – because they are meant to be read aloud! Written in prose and verse by some of India's best known writers, all are rich with sound and rhythm and repetition, slipping comfortably into local language where natural – features of the oral tradition that are certain to draw young children into the world of stories, words and the imagination. Ashok Rajagopalan's illustrations add fun and energy in his inimitable style. Contributors: Zai Whitaker, Uma Krishnaswami, Cathy Spagnoli, Jerry Pinto, Manjula Padmanabhan, Rinchin, Jeeva Raghunath, Sandhya Rao, Shobha Tharoor Srinivasan, Rajee H. Singhania, Subir Shukla, Sushmaa Ahuja, Devashish Makhija, Paro Anand, Vayu Naidu.

Perfect for reading out loud!

The book is a mix of contemporary stories, retold folktales and simple verse. And, speaking from experience, it is a lot of fun reading them out loud. The tales are full of fun sounds, quirky characters and are a blast to dramatically read out (I’m pretty sure that my imaginary audience had fun too). My favourite story of the bunch was the one that came at the very beginning – A Poo Story by Zai Whitaker. It’s not what it sounds like, it’s a hundred times better. Ashok Rajagopalan’s illustrations really bring the stories alive but the stars of the book are the words themselves. Bookworm Etcetera
