Raw, green, sour and crunchy. Or ripe, golden, plump and soft. Summer time is mango time, a time children wait for – blazing sun, sticky mango juice ringing their mouths and dripping down their fingers. The sweet, simple story and luscious pictures evoke delicious flavours of hot days, warm friendships and the smell of mango in the air.

Bite into this delectably sweet story!

The illustrations are vibrant and its double-page spreads perfectly capture the heady flavours of the mango season. Children will also benefit from the little snippets of information that brings a better understanding of Tulu, the language, and of its people. Young India Books

Summery illustrations, yummy text

A book about the joys of friendship, and the carefree innocence of childhood. A drool-worthy book, with warm, summery illustrations by Ajantha Guhathakurtha matching the yumminess of the text. Saffron Tree
