About the Author
Bhakti Mathur grew up in Delhi, India. She lives in Hong Kong, a city that she absolutely adores, with her husband, her two sons, Shiv and Veer, and their beloved golden Labrador, Frodo. She is a banker by profession and currently works for a major Asian Bank. Bhakti’s love of books started from a young age. Her mother was a librarian and as a child she spent many hours in the library; books proved to be great and inexpensive baby sitters. The idea for the Amma, Tell Me series of books came as a way to introduce her sons to Indian mythology and festivals. When not writing, working, or running after her boys, she is happiest curled up with a book and a hot cup of chai.

When I looked online for more age appropriate stories to read to a toddler and help him retain his love for mythology, I discovered this book from Bhakti Mathur. First, the parents love it. The rhyming nature of the story caught my tot's attention and he seems very interested in following the story to the end.
Hopefully this will now replace our bed time reading until he's old enough to get back to the Amar Chitra Katha comic books.
I was so pleasantly surprised with the book- the rhyming script and the illustrations are superb.
There is such a dearth of of good Indian authors writing books for young children that I can't wait for the author to publish a whole series about the various Indian festivals. Will be on the look out.
I definitely recommend that anyone with young kids or even older kids for that matter interested in Indian mythology buy this book. it educated me on some of the facts a bouts Holi as well..
And by signing off with the promise of another story to come, I'm hoping the author continues to keep the art of storytelling alive.
My 6 yr old is currently requesting this book every night, and has asked if there are others in the series that he could get for his birthday - there is no higher praise ;-)
