Raw, green, sour and crunchy. Or ripe, golden, plump and soft. Summer time is mango time, a time children wait for blazing sun, sticky mango juice ringing their mouths and dripping down their fingers. The sweet, simple story and luscious pictures evoke delicious flavours of hot days, warm friendships and the smell of mango in the air.
Malavika Shetty currently teaches at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, but she loves travelling every mango season with her family to Katapadi, her village near Udupi, to enjoy her favourite fruit. This is her first children's book.
Ajanta Guhathakurta studied fine art at the College of Art, Delhi, and has illustrated and designed several books for children and adults. She lives in Delhi where she also teaches painting to children. This is her first book with Tulika.
