A Walk with Thambi
‘We were late. We were running in the street. We had played in the river, and we had climbed trees...’ Everything Amma had said NOT to do! Proiti Roy’s joyous pictures light up the bond between a boy and a dog. Woven into this story of everyday fun are sensory descriptions, and visual details like a walking stick in the boy’s hand or pocket, the dog guiding his friend... clues that gently tell us that the boy is blind.
When Lavanya Karthik was a little kid, all she wanted to do was make up stories and draw pictures. Now She’s a slightly bigger kid, and that is pretty much all she does. She is the author of several picture books, middle grade novels and short stories.
Proiti Roy graduated in Fine Art. Her nuanced sense of form and colour evoke many emotions. Among her acclaimed books are Ismat’s Eid, The Snow King’s Daughter, In Bon Bibi’s Forest, Bulbuli’s Bamboo, and unhappy Moon.
