"Again collaborating with Ravishankar (Tiger on a Tree, 2002), Biswas uses a sketchy line with some solid areas of brown and green on a creamy background to evoke a folksy woodcut style. (Picture book. 4-7)"
"Ravishankar is well-known in India for her Indian English nonsense verse and Biswas is one of the country's premier children's book illustrators; cheers to the publisher for bringing them to these shores. (Picture book. 3-6)"
"The thin story is mostly redeemed by the vigorous illustrations. (Picture book. 6-8)"
With elements reminiscent of many different stories, this original tale features a beloved young girl named Chandra (moon in Hindi) who loses her parents in a terrible flood during monsoon season.
