About the Author
Pika Nani has written many accessible non-fiction books for children and has an uncanny ability to weave both fiction tales and non-fiction facts into a broad tapestry.
"Explores the many little Indias within this country, in a way that is sure to appeal to little Indians. Simple stories with an old-world charm, that give the flavor of a place. I found it refreshing to read stories in which the child protagonists are not the urban characters we usually encounter. In each of the stories, a bunch of kids with no resources to speak of bar their wits, solve a problem." —Saffron Tree
