Our very own #kbcChildoo Amyra Wadhwa has come out with her next book called Tales of Santa !! Just in time for Christmas!
Reva and Prisha by Shals Mahajan for 6-8 years. But this book needs to be read by every parent.
Savi And The Memory Keeper by Bijal Vachharajani for 10 years+. Bijal’s books are very close to our heart. Her books are not only engaging, but they are empowering. A climate warrior, Bijal, strikes an incredible connection with tweens through her books. Asha’s daughter Aarini (who feels very strongly about all things environment), is a huge fan and an unofficial Bhura ambassador :). Kitten Trouble caused a lot of exciting Kitten Business at kbc!!
Maithili and the Minotaur: Web of Woe (Book 1 in an Outlandish Graphic Novel Series) by C. G. Salamander and Rajiv Eipe for 10 years+ is another book we are super excited about!!
Sudha Murty’s latest – The Sage with Two Horns: Unusual Tales from Mythology 8 years+. Quoting Preethi’s Miss M:
The book is about various tales from Mythology (including The Sage with Two Horns)! The stories are interesting and many of them are not heard of before. There is also the story of the pious lady, Kannagi from Tamil Nadu that I have often heard from my appa. I also want to tell you what my faaavvvoooorite story is. It is the Identical Nose Rings. It is about a woman named Sarasvati. Sarasvati looked happy from the outside but was unhappy from the inside of her heart. That is because her husband, Srinivasa Nayaka had a huge flaw, his miserly nature. This teaches Srinivasa Nayaka to abandon his behaviour. That is why I like this story so so so so much!In these stories, I have one favourite character, Sage Agastya. Yup. He’s the one who taught the two demon brothers, Illvala and Vatapi a GREAT lesson! Sage Agastya used their own trick to destroy them. How clever!I loved the book because it has a lot of unheard stories and they are all wowmazing! Also, the book cover is shiny and attractive. (I tried recreating the cover design. Hope you like it!)The illustrations are by Priyankar Gupta and the sketches inside are brilliant.
When Mommy Was a Little Girl – an anthology for 8 years+
The Chowpatty Cooking Club (Series: Songs of Freedom) by Lubaina Bandukwala for 10 years+
Ritu Weds Chandni by Ameya Narvanka for 6 years+
