Description

A Full Circle is an evocative ode to the power of poetry, in which art and verse bring each other alive.

In this poem, author and artist Namrita Bachchan describes the magic of childhood and what the world looks like through the eyes of her curious, free-spirited five-year-old daughter, as she explores the wonder of reading. Enriched by a soothing rhythm, the words in this exquisitely illustrated book run parallel to ethereal imagery, immersing readers of all ages in a fantastical journey against the backdrop of nature.

Within these pages, a wide, wild world waits to be discovered – in a way that is finer, freer, and ultimately fuller.
