To Market! to Market! (Hardback)Anushka Ravishankar (author), Emanuele Scanziani (illustrator)
Hardback 24 Pages
A little Indian girl goes to market with a pocketful of change and no idea what to buy - just 'something funny, nice or even strange'. But among the rich and colorful wonders of the market, she finds the real fun's not in the buying at all. Anushka Ravishankar's inimitable nonsense verse enlivens this exuberant pictorial tribute to the vitality of everyday India, illustrated by award-winning Italian artist Emanuele Scanziani. Designer Rathna Ramanathan's innovative typography creates a unique cohesion between the verse and artwork of each scene - every element on the page adds to the world of the story.
