It is hard not to notice Nabiya in Savita Teacher’s English story classes. She listens so hard that she hardly blinks! Slowly, she begins to explore stories, delight in their words, pictures and funny moments. This sensitively told story about a spirited young girl, who likes football as much as she likes storybooks, is based on the author’s own experience. Using a collage of colours, textures and drawings, the illustrations evoke Nabiya’s everyday world and her journey into the world of words.
