Farmer Falgu Goes to the Market
Chitra Soundar, Kanika Nair (Illustrator), Karadi Tales (APRIL) Hardcover $12.95 (30pp), 978-818190312-9
Everyone knows what to do when life gives you lemons, but Farmer Falgu has a delightful new alternative. One thing after another goes awry on his way to the market. Broad outlines and bold colors join a riot of expressive exclamations as exotic Indian sights, sounds, and smells sizzle, honk, bump, and dunk along the road with an optimistically determined Falgu and his oxen until they finally reach their destination, rumpled wares and all.
