Rama and Sita: The Story of Diwali Press Reviews

The bright, colourful illustrations perfectly reflect the fact that Diwali is the festival of light and help bring the story to life. This book will be a great addition to my bookshelf at school. * K and O: Bonkers About Books * The whole story is adorned by bursts of colour and energy by Christopher Corr. * The Irish Times * Each double page is bright, full of colour and representative of the Diwali festival itself where colour is so significant. * Mamma Filz * It is a text that will work well at home as a story or in the classroom. This is supported wonderfully by Corr's artwork, and his signature vibrant colour schemes are a perfect match to the dazzling colours of Indian culture and landscapes. * Library Mice *
