It is hard not to notice Nabiya in Savita
Teacher's English story classes. She listens so
intently that she hardly blinks! Slowly, she
begins to explore stories and delight in their words, pictures and funny moments.
This sensitively told story about a spirited young girl, who
likes football as much as she likes storybooks, is based on
the author's own experience. Using a collage of colours,
textures and drawings, the illustrations evoke Nabiya's
everyday world and her journey into the world of words.

She leads writing workshops where children learn to make stories, so they continue to look for the magical in the ordinary even after they grow up.
Ruchi Mhasane is a freelance illustrator who studied children's illustration in Cambridge, UK, and now lives and works in Mumbai. She spends most of her time drawing, writing, listening to music and travelling. This is her second book for Tulika, after Raindrops.
