Charming and captivating, Shabdon Ki Holi (Kommuru Books) is a treasure for the family bookshelf. Introducing fun and lively creatures for the first time in a Hindi children's book. A father himself, author Subhash Kommuru couldn't find the books he wanted to read to his son, so he and his wife set out to create them.
Shabdon Ki Holi is a positive message encouraging kids to use their words. Subhash and Sujata Kommuru immigrated to the U.S. from India and seek to fill their son's childhood with the diversity, traditional wisdom and cultural values they remember from their own youth. The time-honored structure of the fable lends its strength to their stories; characters reveal truth in familiar patterns.
Ramesh and Suresh are two siblings who love to blabber and find it very funny. But this holi they experience a adventure like never before and meet entertaining creatures/jeevs who are lot of fun but their vocabulary is very limited. See how both siblings go from blabbering to teaching Bandhu, Pratham and his fellow creatures the usage of words - featuring bright and fun illustrations in the backdrop of holi festival.
As in the very best of children's literature, the gentle humor appeals to a younger audience while adults appreciate more subtle touches. Action and suspense cut through the age gap without obscuring the important moral lesson of the story.
Mesmerizing illustrations, rendered with love by Sujata Kommuru, capture every nuance of the tale in great detail and every character has been very carefully portrayed and designed. They have also published Bargad, available in Hindi and English, and Subhash is the author of The Magic of Friendship. The Kommuru's have the heart, the talent and the skill to combine the beauty and mystery of an age-old culture with a sensible message that honors love and family in the 21st century.
