A WALK WITH THAMBI

A WALK WITH THAMBI

ABOUT THE BOOK

“We were late. We were running in the street. We had played in teh river, and we had climbed trees…” Everything Amma had said NOT to do!

Proiti Roy’s joyous pictures light up the bond between a boy and a dog. Woven into this story of everyday fun are sensory descriptions, and visual details like a walking stick in the boy’s hand or pocket, the dog guiding his friend… clues that gently tell us that the boy is blind.

SNAPSHOT REVIEW

  • A cute story about a boy and his dog, till you spot what you’re not being told.
  • The text is minimal; the details are in the illustrations.
  • The vibrant artwork will enthral readers, both children and adults.
  • Anybody who thought picture books couldn’t have twists will be surprised, as there is more than one here.

CONCLUSION

A clever and sensitive picture book that delivers a lesson without the reader realising it.

“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.”
