The story is of a little girl who likes to suck her thumb all the time even if her mammy daddy stops her. The author thought it best, instead, to include a lip sucking hippo calf in the story and dedicate the book to all little children who struggle to let go of their thumb, finger, lip or toe.

About the Contributors

Natasha Sharma was a pencil-end-chewing, two-finger-sucking, lip-biting, nail-nibbling kind of child. She grew up to be a brand manager. She now writes books for children and is a good adult who sneakily nibbles one nail sometimes. This book is for all little children who struggle to let go of their thumbs, fingers, lips and toes.

Ruchi Shah is inspired by stories and the world around her. Working on a hunch, often by mixing layers of colors, textures and materials, she marries the gap between fact and fiction seamlessly. A dreamer and illustrator of experiences, the ever-curious Ruchi also paints walls in schools and homes to make spaces come alive.
