About the Book:

This is a novel attempt, under the aegis of UNESCO, at developing books for Asian children by Asian authors. To have children in Korea share their fantasies with their counterparts in Sri Lanka is probably no mean achievement. And when Indian and Pakistani editors work as part of a team to build a list for children in the twenty odd countries of the continent we inhabit, it's a great new beginning. The many worlds from Tehran to Tokyo intermingle to give colour to words that children across the continent, if not the world, would love to read. These books are steps for bridging minds and creating a common heritage for this vast continent. This is the very best of Asia today.
