Thatha at School, Bijal, Hindu

Thatha at School gets a thumbs up from kidlit critic and commentator Bijal Vachharajani over at her column in The Hindu. She includes this book as one of the great summer reads this vacation season.

She says, “Richa Jha writes a wonderful, nuanced tale about a child’s relationship with her cherished, if sometimes embarrassing Thatha. Gautam Benegal’s illustrations are spirited and reflect Oviyam’s constantly changing moods perfectly.”

Thank you, Bijal!
