The Puri that Ran Away

Zakir Husain
Illustrations by Pooja Pottenkulam
Buddhu’s mother is too busy wiping his nose to notice that the puri she is cooking is almost burnt. But is this fearless little puri going to hang around waiting to be eaten? ‘Bet you can’t catch me!’ she taunts and she’s off! Outrunning the farmer and his friends, outwitting the rabbit, and outfoxing the fox, Puri thinks that she can never be caught! But can she?

Translated into English, by the author’s great-granddaughter Samina Mishra, these books will delight anyone learning to read for the first time, and are perfect for parents and teachers to read aloud. With colourful illustrations and simple text, they can unlock the wonderful world of a child’s imagination…
