  • Hen-sparrow Turns Purple

    Gita Wolf, Pulak Biswas

    Hardcover (Tara Books, April 1, 2004)
    Designed as a scroll, and silk-screened by hand on handmade paper, this is a cheerful adaptation of a traditional folk tale. Hen-sparrow falls into a vat of dye and turns quite purple. Her strange new color turns the entire kingdom upside down, but Hen-sparrow quite likes herself purple . . .Inspired by medieval Indian art and narrative traditions, this visual and tactile treat has a clever feminist twist. The form of the book and the cumulative rhyme re-create the age-old magical experience of storytelling with pictures.Winner of the Grand Prix at the prestigious Biennale of Illustrations, Bratislava."Beguiling and a wonderful introduction to the appreciation of a more global culture of the picture book."—Mike Simkin, Carousel Magazine, United Kingdom
  • The Lord of Lanka

    Anant Pai Pulak Biswas

    (India Book House, Jan. 1, 2006)
    Ambition and arrogance - these were to be the cause of Ravana's downfall. Blessed by both Brahma the creator and Shiva the destroyer, the powerful ruler of Lanka could have enjoyed fame and respect had he only reined in his arrogance. It was left to Vishnu the preserver to find a way to curb Ravana. In the process, there unfolded one of the world's most beautiful romantic sagas - the story of Rama's love for his devoted Sita.
