The latest children's picture book from acclaimed Gond artist Bhajju Shyam is a powerful yet sensitive visual story of the psychology of fear.


New

Bhajju Shyam, Gita Wolf & Andrea Anastasio


One day, Musa sets off alone to collect wood from the forest near to his home. Suddenly, he hears a deafening noise and is overcome with terror… Was the sound a wild boar? A whole herd of wild boars? Or something even worse?


What happens to Musa and how he learns to deal with his fear is explored in this powerful yet sensitive visual story of the psychology of fear. Typography, book design, narrative, and contemporary Indian tribal artwork by renowned Gond artist Bhajju Shyam come together in this new children’s book.


Gond tribal artist Bhajju Shyam is from Madhya Pradesh in central India. The Gonds are a community of highly visual people, who were traditionally forest dwellers, and the inspiration for this story came from Bhajju’s stories of his own childhood.

The Mahabharatha: A Child\
The Mahabharatha: A Child's View

Twelve year old Samhita Arni's beautifully illustrated version of the Mahabharatha is a bold and fresh re-telling of the great epic. The epic which was earlier in two separate volumes is now available in a single volume.


Written and illustrated by Samhita Arni

The great Indian epic Mahabharatha is a complex tale of ambition, war and destruction. Twelve year old Samhita Arni's version is bold and unorthodox in its depiction of character and in the sharply critical tone it adopts towards the epic's main theme: war. Samhita has illustrated the book herself with intricate line drawings.
