Written by SHARANYA MANIVANNAN | Illustrated by NERINA CANZI
Aditya and Anjali love listening to their grandmother’s stories, but the night their grandmother passes away, all her stories seem to lose their meaning. Then something happens that is more mysterious and magical than any story. Could their grandmother still be with them after all? A poignant and moving story about bereavement and healing, stunningly illustrated and told in gorgeous poetic prose.

Beautiful book, conjures such emotions and might I say what a beautiful way to access even on an epub reader! Please do read this tale of love, loss and the eternal magic of deep connections!
Love the journey the children are taken on by their grandmother who lives on as a ‘puchi’. Nicely narrated.
Such a beauty of a book — to read, to look at, to absorb. After I finished reading it to my boys, the three of us sat in a silent huddle for a while. To say we loved it would be an understatement.
Fun, just a little naughty, and a loving presence who will always be there. Thank you Sharanya and thank you Lantana.
