SNAPSHOT REVIEW

  • Environmental educational material presented in fictionalised form.
  • Takes up pertinent issues of the times, such as habitat loss and declining biodiversity.
  • Anusha Menon’s full-bleed bright illustrations are an apt accompaniment to the text.
  • Unclear what age group this book is for.
  • The text is heavy and wordy.

CONCLUSION

Even though this is an educational book about the environment, one wishes the writing could have been better.

“For a teacher or librarian faced with dozens of books to read, a good book review website is as essential as maps are for geographers.”

“Indian children’s books rarely get the kind of publicity they deserve in the popular or social media. Websites like Goodbooks plug the gap by not letting a single Indian children’s book of merit slip through the cracks. Most people would not even know about the books available in the market if not for a resource like this.”
