About The Book

Karimuga is a rakshasa, a pleasant rakshasa. He is a beautiful rakshasa too. But that makes all the other rakshasas jealous of him. Karimuga can't bear to see them unhappy. . . Sowmya Rajendran inverts our ideas about beauty, happiness and rakshasas with humour and a light touch. Niveditha's quirky pictures have little and big rakshasas romp through the pages in pinks and purples, blues and greens, adding to the fun.

About The Author

This is Sowmya Rajendran's sixth picture book published by Tulika. From Aana and Chena, her first, to Power Cut, School is Cool, The Snow King's Daughter, and Monday to Sunday, Sowmya's stories evoke strong themes through a gentle voice and an effortlessly simple style. She has tackled subjects as varied as beauty, gender and displacement in her books.

Niveditha Subramaniam is a versatile writer-illustrator who can write stories that are fantastical, funny and sensitive. Her busy imagination and passion for picture books have cooked up Jalebi Curls, 9 to 1, The Musical Donkey and The Skymonkey's Beard. Brimming with playful exuberance, warmth, and affection, they offer children many delightful moments.

The two of them are co-author of the bestselling, much loved, Mayil Not Be Quiet.
