Malu Bhalu

This is a story about Malu, an adorable young polar bear growing up in the North Pole. As the tale unfolds through the adventures of Malu, the lilting cadence of the writing draws another larger picture: about girls, about what girls can do too. Yes, Malu is a female polar bear! The charming full page illustrations make this a most appealing picture book for children.


"Best for bedtime re-reads with its unpretentious verse and imagery. Simple and well-intentioned, the story reads like a long poem, but with enough action to keep the pages turning. As in 'into the water – splash! – to land'. But there's a moral too for first-timer child, and each of us. The story was born out of a story-telling session the writer once had with her spastic son. In the book, they relate the thrill of having stumbled on a message so meaningful." -April 1999, The New Indian Express

"The rhymes have an infectious lilt and musically echo through the ear much after the reading is over. The touching bond between mother and child is sure to appeal to the young." -April 1999, The Hindu
