Ju's Story

Description
About The Book

For Ju, old is gold. Her mother brings her hand-me-downs from the homes in which she works and Ju welcomes them like new friends. She especially loves the well-used textbooks and the treasures sometimes hidden among their pages: pressed flowers, poems, even a dead butterfly ... Then one day [u discovers a sealed envelope in the maths book. It has a stamp but no address.

JU'S STORY is part of 'Different Tales', a project undertaken by Anveshi Research Centre for Women's Studies, Hyderabad, to present stories about life-worlds seldom reflected in children's books. In the hands of a sensitive writer like Paul Zacharia, the story of a simple discovery becomes a moving experience. Asma Menon's strong, painterly illustrations suggest a sense of empowerment.

About The Author

PAUL ZACHARIA is a well-known Malayalam writer and columnist. He has published over 40 works of fiction and non-fiction and received several awards, including the Sahitya Akademi award in 2004. He lives in Thiruvananthapuram. This is his first picture book in English for children.

ASMA MENON is a Chennai-based artist who enjoys facilitating workshops for children. She has previously illustrated two children's books, and poetry in Tamil and Malayalam. She has also helped create a website for artists in Chennai.

Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
Steven, USA
