Bulbuli lives in a bamboo house in a bamboo grove, and is busy in her little bamboo world from the time she wakes up to the time she goes to sleep. Just by following Bulbuli around, this evocative story told in a rhythmic, cumulative style spotlights bamboo to make a green statement simply and charmingly. Bamboo is, after all, one of the fastest growing plants on earth and one bamboo grove releases nearly thirty-five per cent more oxygen and absorbs about four times as much carbon dioxide than an equivalent cluster of trees. Words and pictures communicate a very real sense of the versatility of bamboo and its importance as a key resource for sustainable living.

About the Contributors

The author spent her teenage years in Assam in northeastern India – where the story is based – at the edge of the Kaziranga National Park, by the banks of the Brahmaputra river, around orchids her father collected avidly. Quite naturally, she is passionate about environmental issues, flora and bamboo. She now lives with her husband in the USA.

The illustrator has a nuanced sense of form and colour that evoke many emotions. Some of her popular books include Ismat’s Eid, The Snow King’s Daughter, Gulla and the Hangul and A walk with Thambi.
