And did you know that our very own Sanjay Dutt has a huge, loyal fan base in Germany? Take a look at this blog post by Ingrid Diwali Zellner. She reviews The Monkeys and the Capseller and Monkeys on a Fast, two titles narrated by Sanjay Dutt in the 'Will You Read With Me?' series by Karadi Tales.

Back at Saffron Tree, our favourite website on children's literature, ChoxBox refers to a Karadi Rhymes song in a review of Meera's Friends, the Trees. Take a look at the post at Saffron Tree and the cross-post at Life is a box of chocolates.

And at Pratham Books, ChoxBox writes a guest post where she talks about the Bandar Bindas Bandar compilation of Karadi Tales. You can read the cross-post at her blog as well.

At the Scholastic-Aviva Storytelling Night in Chennai on 19 February 2010, two Karadi authors, Shobha Viswanath and Kaushik Viswanath, read from The Seventh Kozhakattai, a hilarious soon-to-be-published story from Karadi Tales.
