WHAT'S NEW & WHAT'S COOKING
Sowmya Rajendran is the winner of Sahitya Akademi's Bal Sahitya Puraskar and the author of incredible books such as the Mayil series, The Rulebreakers' Club series, Ashwathy and the Boot of God and the young-reader favourites Suddenly Cow and The Pleasant Rakshasa. Her writing has enthralled readers of all ages with her witty, endearing stories that are poignant, funny, yet very contemporary.
As a mum to a curious 7-year-old, we thought we'd ask her for her favourite picks for the summer holidays that capture the essence of India in its myriad forms. (She wouldn't put her own books on the list, but we recommend them whole-heartedly and are bound to feature in most must-read lists you will find featured on this blog).
So here are five books that Sowmya generously picked for you and your kids.
All are quintessentially Indian, about India, and truly Iconiq.
The Why-Why Girl by Mahasweta Devi
Salim Mamoo and Me by Zai Whitaker
Timmi In Tangles by Shals Mahajan
The Mahabharatha: A Child's View by Samhita Arni
A Kite Called Korika by Sarada Kolluru
