Synopsis

Siddharth and Rinki by Addy Farmer

Siddharth dreams of India where he used to live. He doesn't like this new place - the cold, the grey and the strange food of England. Only his toy elephant Rinki understands. When Rinki gets lost at school, Siddharth feels more lonely than ever. His classmates join him in the search for Rinki and together they go on a great adventure that bonds them as a group.

Artwork is in a sensuous painterly style with the hues reflecting the emotional tone, and Siddharth's ethnic origin ... Lush visual effects include jungly overgrowth, which springs up in the most unlikely places like the classroom and playground, as the borderline between fantasy and reality successfully merges -- Jane Doonan The School Librarian This attractive book is the warming story of a lonely child, new to a cold rainy climate, who loses the precious toy elephant that is his confidant ... A must for our schools and homes Children's Books Ireland A heart-warming story of a little boy and his comforter -- Paula Roberts Bournemouth Daily Echo
