Nimesh is walking home from school. Except…there happens to be a shark in the corridor. And a dragon in the library! And why would crossing the road lead to the North Pole? A fun-filled story about a little boy with a BIG imagination, Nimesh the Adventurer will surely make even the dullest journey a dazzling adventure.

Sparks imagination

My 4-year old loves playing pretend, so he enjoys this book a lot! 🐯

We love Nimesh!

This fantastic tale about a young storyteller is great fun! My kids love to imagine their own adventures and can really see themselves in Nimesh. Great illustrations too
