Curls and twirls

Animator-designer Kavita Singh Kale took jolly Jalebi Curls and dhinchak Dungi Dance to Nirmal Bhartia School in Delhi, where little ones twirled with Dungi and drew curly jalebis. Later, she hopped over to the India Art Fair where children made art books on Delhi’s winter. Cool!

Not Yet! right now

Cuddling hippos, snuggling whales, singing with rhinos… it’s been a busy-tizzy city-hopping launch line-up for Nandana Dev Sen and Not Yet!. In less than a month of its release, our latest bilingual picture book has become everyone’s favourite sleep-time story! Pick up a copy to know why.

Happy launch of Unhappy Moon

The waves waved at the moon and so did the children… Author Saras and illustrator Proiti Roy told the luminous story in English and Bengali at the Oxford Junior Literary Festival, part of the Apeejay Kolkata Literary Festival. The children then recited moon poems and sang moon songs, while the big, bright illustrations, just as dazzling as the big, bright moon, beamed down on them!

Leading Reading Schools of India 2017

The national children’s read-and-review competition is back for the fourth time. Launched to encourage children to become lifelong readers, this is a platform for them to say what they think about the books being created for them. This edition celebrates our 70th year of Independence with the theme India Meri Hai, and features seven Tulika titles in the junior category! What are you waiting for? Spread the word and register today!

Show and tell

Nazar Art Gallery, Mumbai, hosted Words and Images, an exhibition of children’s books that included over 15 of ours! Here’s word from the gallery: “Your books generated a lot of interest, especially Mukund and Riaz. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful books with us.” 

Diversity in disability

“One day, Tulika Books popped up on my Facebook newsfeed, announcing an offer on children’s books about disability. This made me think about why I had not organically come across any book featuring disability in any way in the past year. I also wondered what I could expect from children’s books featuring disability. With this in mind, I set out to explore a few of these books.” Find out which books Roshni Subash liked and why on the Sexuality and Disability blog

On that note, Chetana Charitable Trust, Chennai, is once again hosting a National Tactile Book competition, held in partnership with Les Doigts Qui Rêvent (Dreaming Fingers), Talant, France. The international competition is organised once in two years to create an awareness of the importance of literacy and the role of accessible and enjoyable reading materials for young children with vision impairment.

Magical always!

The Magical Fish is not on our bestseller list. But, as only the best books do, it always leaves something in the minds and hearts of readers of all ages, as with this perceptive blogger…

'That sense of this new happiness . . . as fragile and in need of community protection is present on the last page of the book, where we’re reminded that:
“That is why you must never catch the magical fish. If by mistake you do, you must let her go. And if you ever meet three women in a boat who tell you this story, you must believe them, for what they say is true.”

I’m aware that in reading this book in this way I’m doing it a disservice–for one thing, I haven’t even mentioned Gond artist Shakuntala Kushram’s gorgeous illustrations. But “leave your sadness behind or carry it with you” might be a great motto to carry forward into this year.'
