‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Flight of the Mermaid
by Gita Wolf & Sirish Rao
Age Range: 6-8
This is a different take on the Hans Christian Andersen story of ‘The Little Mermaid’. Gita Wolf and Sirish Rao have created a poetic version that takes place in a tribal cosmos, where the worlds of water, land and air are intertwined and the human is never isolated from the rest of nature. The mermaid faces terrible choices as she struggles in her quest to become human.
Bhajju Shyam is an acclaimed Gond tribal artist and has created incredibly captivating and rich illustrations for this handmade book.
