Another brilliantly illustrated book by Tulika Publishers that we chanced upon at a book exhibit at the Grand Hyatt this afternoon. The story and pictures by Manjula Padmanabhan are so simple yet so captivating for a 3 year old. Actually I thinkits a brilliantly illustrated book ofÂ looking for a naughty little cat on a busy city street filled with people to talk to and things to look at! The endearing pictures with delightful details invite us to join Minnie in her search for Pooni â€“ who is always just a step ahead.
Why we like it?
1. Simple and short story
2. Brilliant illustrations. They lend itself to a street in India and way more than just a story book.
3. Love the names minnie & pooonie. They bring an instant smile on your child’s face. Actually a naughty one
4. Love the anxiety the child goes through when she feels like something she loves is lost.
5. Children love searching for the cat through the busy illustrations
Ages: I would recommend a 2+
Review: A great buy and a book to gift for Rs 95 only.
