Nani has gone. Forever. Where? asks Nina. Her mother grapples with answers but Nina won’t stop asking. Finally, she finds her own answers, through the warmth of memories, the comfort of imagination – and a little bit of natural science! The light touch and tone of the story along with the quietly reflective pictures treat the difficult subject of the loss of a loved one in a sensitive and refreshing way.

About the Contributors

Chatura Rao is the author of a couple of novels for children and short stories that have appeared in several anthologies. She leads writing workshops where children learn to make stories, so they continue to look for the magical in the ordinary even after they grow up.

Krishna Bala Shenoi has a deep interest in animation, photography, filmmaking and illustration… ‘just anything to tell a story’ as he puts it. He is particularly drawn to picture books, and says, “A good storybook can start a spark in the child’s mind and send them on their way to who-knows-where. And I want to take young people places.”
