Who’s There?

“A folktale from Jharkhand. A Bhoot and a Bhootni take temporary shelter in a farmer’s attic where the Bhootni gives birth to a dozen little ones. Later they find a permanent shelter in a tamarind tree at the end of the farmer’s field. The quirkiness of the idea and the setting of the story are very engaging. The charming and playful illustrations reinforce the text.”
