Rumours in Australia!


While Little Vinayak went to California to meet blogger mom Katy Fries, The Rumour did some travelling of its own as well! 

First, this book went to Korea with a beautiful Korean translation by Book House Publishers. 

And now, The Rumour has gone on a book swap to Australia! Sandhya of Saffron Tree sends The Rumour to Catherine in Australia, and Catherine blogs about the book on her blog here

Catherine writes: 

The illustrations also show lots of details of Indian village life, especially the way the people dress and carry out their daily jobs. We loved getting this wonderful book from Sandhya and her daughter and the story made us smile.  My eldest son, who is a budding fisherman, appreciated the way the rumour got more and more elaborate as the tale was retold (just the way that fish get bigger as you tell people about your fishing trip).

Thanks, Catherine! Read the entire post on Catherine's blog!

And shhh! Here's a secret.... The Rumour will soon be out as an audiobook from Karadi Tales narrated by thespian and film actor, Konkona Sen Sharma! We'll keep you posted on this!
