FORTHCOMING! It's My Colour!
Henna, hands and happiness!

This cool-cool book came hot off the press and landed in the hands of little children everywhere in dots and waves, swirls and curls in rich orange patterns – because it’s Henna on my Hands! From away in UAE, author Fawzia Gilani-Williams gently read the beautifully decorative book to children who then traced their hands on paper and filled them with their own designs – flowers and butterflies, squares and triangles...

Guthli swings into the White Ravens catalogue!

On an ordinary Thursday afternoon, we received the extraordinary news that one of our picture books has made it to the prestigious 2020 White Ravens catalogue! Which book? Guthli has Wings, written and illustrated by Kanak Shashi! As the language specialists at White Ravens say, “This premium label is given to books of international interest that deserve a wider reception on account of their universal theme and/or their exceptional and often innovative artistic and literary style and design.” Here’s to embracing fluid identities!

'Emerged' a winner!

The celebrations continue... the amazingly inspirational life of India’s genius mathematician as told by Priya Narayanan and illustrated by Satwik Gade in Srinivasa Ramanujan: Friend of Numbers won the 2020 Neev Book Awards in the Emerging Readers category! The jury said "Together with the illustrations, this powerful book is a rendering of his struggles and successes balanced with facts and figures from his work and life. The images will especially appeal to emerging readers as they are introduced to a force to reckon with in the world of mathematics." Yay! Available at an awe-sum price this month.

A warm shoutout to Ammama's Sari and The Gular Flower that were nominated in the Picture Book category.
