Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Maya's family refuses to believe that she has an elephant in her backyard. But the elephant is not hers and he needs to return home! Shobha Viswanath's simple, delightful story is illustrated gorgeously in watercolors by Sadhvi Jawa.

About the Author

Shobha Viswanath: Publishing Director and co-founder of Karadi Tales Company, Shobha Viswanath is passionate about picture books. With two Masters degrees – one in English Literature from the University of Bombay and one in Special Education from Eastern Michigan University – she has a wealth of teaching experience.

Sadhvi Jawa: Sadhvi graduated from Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology as a textile artist. She illustrates and does textile art. She works with urban poor children, making them self-reliant by teaching them to use textiles as a medium of self expression and a source of livelihood. She is passionate about telling stories through illustrations and textiles. She loves childrens stories especially; as she thinks they are actually meant for adults who keep forgetting the child in themselves in the complexity of growing up.
