THE MAGIC UMBRELLAS
The first day of school is a big deal for most children.
Leela is no exception. She is very much looking forward to the start of the new school year but the rain pours and pours where she lives. Her mother buys her a beautiful new blue umbrella with fluffy white clouds on it. Leela’s classmates love her new umbrella!
But then at lunch, it goes missing. Nobody has taken it. No one sees or hears anything except for a gentle whoosh. Where does the umbrella go?
This fun-filled story, complete with beautiful water colour illustrations, brings alive an adventure in small-town India. It helps us glimpse the bustle of the school classroom at lunch time, the warmth of friends, and the interesting after-school life of a dedicated Indian school teacher.
Trivia: This book was written as a result of the author’s summer writing internship with Multistory Learning!
Ms Moochie Books is an independent publishing house. They publish contemporary Indian books for children. What sets them apart is their unique story → book process. All new stories are taken to classrooms by storytellers. Feedback from the children is passed on to the author. She makes changes. This loop is iterated till the children give the story an emphatic thumbs up, after which the book is made. This allows them to actively involve the reader, i.e the child, in the making of the book.
