“Where’s my bear?” asks a little girl as soon as she comes home from school. But... he’s missing! Where could he be? So she sets off to find him, knocking on the door of each apartment in her building. As she climbs higher and higher, she meets all kinds of people, makes a lot of new friends, and sees some strange sights… but what about her bear? Will she find him?

The Boy Who Speaks in Numbers is a darkly satiric account of childhood in times of war. Set in Sri Lanka, the events it narrates could equally happen elsewhere — in all places where human deaths are reduced to numbers and guns do not differentiate between adults and children. Mike Masilamani’s ironic narrative centresaround an unnamed boy, who bears witness to a bizarre and violent time. Matthew Frame’s textured illustrations are a powerful testimony to the horror of prolonged civil strife.

The Bhil people of Central India are amongst the oldest indigenous communities in India. To them, the natural world — of trees, creatures that inhabit them, and the forest of which they are a part — is not ‘out there’, but rather exists in a seamless relationship to their home and the everyday. Gangu Bai, Bhil artist, explores this relationship through her memories and pings of food, work, festivals, illness, medicine and much else. Her tales centre round trees, and so each of her memories has a tree as its focus.
