Say hello to two new books!  Grab your copies (from one of the bright yellow tubs) at our next event!

Tiger Boy – The story of Neel, a young boy living in the Sunderbans — with its beautiful trees and magnificent Royal Bengal Tigers.

When a tiger cub goes missing, Neel and his sister Rupa set out to find the cub to ensure that it does not get ensnared by the evil Gupta and his men. Gupta, of course, wants to sell the cub! For all middle graders who love animals and adventure, this book is going to be a special treat! Go on, roam the Sunderbans with Neel…

 Here’s a chance for children aged between 9 to 12 years to become a “Tiger Champion”. The folks at RivoKids are looking for a poster for tiger conservation… and a striking slogan. Click here (this will open a new window) for details. 

Neelu’s Big Box – Today (30 September) is International Translation Day, so here’s a bilingual picture book to read aloud to your child to mark the day… in English and Hindi.

The story follows Neelu’s plans to turn the box she finds into a fort. Hold on to your seat and get ready to take a colourful ride in to a child’s imagination!
