This is a story about Malu, an adorable young polar bear growing up in the North Pole. As the tale unfolds through the adventures of Malu, the lilting cadence of the writing draws another larger picture: about girls, about what girls can do too. Yes, Malu is a female polar bear! The charming full page illustrations make this a most appealing picture book for children.

About the Author

Kamla Bhasin specialised in Sociology of Development. As a result, her work with NGOs and women’s groups equipped her to write extensively on women’s empowerment, rural development and sustainable agriculture. Her writings for children include Dhammak Dham: rhymes for children in Hindi, Urdu, English, Gujarati and Punjabi and Ulti Sulti Mito (Kali for Women). Kamla lives in New Delhi.

Bindia Thapar was an architect by profession and illustrator by choice. She collaborated closely with writer Kamla Bhasin on several projects, and the pictures for Tulika’s Malu Bhalu were floating around in her head long before it was thought of as a book. A special friend, she was with Tulika from the start of our publishing journey – Ka se Kapade Kaise? the Hindi alphabet book brilliantly conceived and created by her, was one of the first books we published, and reprinted several times on popular demand.
