The author’s own wonder at discovering the secret of the gular flower, much later in life than Renchu, led to this charming story. But being Rinchin, it is layered with more than just the quest for an elusive flower. Continuing from her earlier book, The Trickster Bird, she sets it in the world of Paardhi tribals displaced from the forests. The strikingly textured, stylised illustrations take us through their dreams and reality.
