Ammachi can’t find her glasses one morning and everything goes topsy-turvy!

Page after page spills with drama, humour, detail and local flavour as Priya Kuriyan spins a hilarious tale about a crazy day with unforgettable Ammachi—“the archetypal grandmother from memories of my own childhood in Kerala,” as Priya says. The celebrated illustrator is at her best in this, her first wordless picture book.


  • A hilarious, action-packed picture book about Ammachi’s day without her glasses.
  • Without using any words at all, Priya Kuriyan tells a splendid story.
  • A complete story, with a tiny twist in the end!
  • A beautifully produced book to enjoy by yourself or with a companion.

“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.”

Anil Menon - Writer

“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.”


“Book review sites like Goodbooks are a wonderful resource for locating theme-based or issue-based children’s books to enrich the learning experience in the classroom and at home.”
