Pranav says he is drawing a picture. But his mother sees nothing on the page! What is Pranav drawing? The narrative and freewheeling illustrations follow the simple, spontaneous logic of a child’s mind.

Within six pages, that takes less than 30 seconds for an adult to thumb through, Pranav has managed to imagine a giraffe about to eat grass, but really didn’t because a horse ate all the giraffe’s grass, leaving the giraffe in tears. Meanwhile a boy mounts the horse and gallops to his house, a house with A-line roof, one door and two windows to be specific, gets in to bed and goes to sleep, which is depicted by the blue line.
