A long train, a river, a rope, a hammock . . . the sari that Mother wears everyday is more than a fabric.
A little girl fascinated by her mother’s beautiful saris weaves a world of colours around her. She sails down the sari-river, hides under the sari with her friends, and climbs up the sari like on a rope.
This visual treasure of a picture book combines photographs and acrylics in dramatic and original ways. It breaks away from conventional depictions of both children and the sari, and weaves and winds a yarn filled with shades and textures.
The US edition of this book was selected by the United States Board on Books for Young People (USBBY) and the Children’s Book Council as one of the Outstanding International Books for 2007.
