The original Malayalam award winning story by M Mukundan is translated by K M Sherrif and Neerada Suresh for Katha India's The Glass Tree with beautiful illustrations by Poonam Athalye.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Mutthashi cannot sleep without listening to Unni's stories.
Unni is just 7 years old, but he can weave the best of stories, you see.
So Unni tells Mutthashi a thought provoking story about a Champaka tree that was felled to make way for a beautiful tree of glass, by a skilled artisan from the west.
The Champaka tree was old, and would die eventually, but a tree of glass? A tree of glass would never die, never grow old, never shed its leaves and most importantly, would look magnificent.
But the real question here was this - Could a tree of glass ever replace a real tree?
