Funky Rainbow ~ The Travelling Children’s Bookshop carries an exclusive selection of Indian children’s books and puts them up for sale at children’s events across Bangalore (and online for the rest of India). The books, meant for children between the ages of 1 to 18 years, are hand-picked by writers, illustrators and editors. Our collection is curated to represent the best of Indian children’s writing because we believe that books by Indian writers work well for children in terms of connections, discoveries and experiences. Every month we compile a list of our very own FR Bestsellers. Here’s what flew out of our yellow tubs most in March 2017!
