Dark/Cheekati (Telugu)

Author : Radhika Menon
Illustrator : Biswajit Balasubramanian

The lights go off and Thangi can't find Thambi. He's not in the cupboard, he's not behind the door, he's not under the bed. Where could he be? This beginner reader is part of the Thumb Thumb Books series, created around the common thumbprint and featuring Thumb Thumb Thangi and Thumb Thumb Thambi. Short sentences, bold type and vibrant visuals make entry into reading easy and exciting. At the end is a page for children to make their own thumbprint drawings – and the line ‘I can read this book’ affirms the young reader’s confident place in the word of books.

Illustrations created with thumbprints

The illustrations are created with thumbprints - hence the names of the characters. Thambi and Thangi feature together in some of the books and by themselves in the rest. The size of the book is child-friendly and not at all intimidating for a beginner reader. Saffrontree.org
