Synopsis

To Market, To Market - PB by Eman Anushka Ravishankar

Reviews

Ravishankar's quirky, rhythmic verse becomes a graphic, narrative force in itself, physically wrapping itself around images, becoming characters, taking falls, and generally slithering and dithering or thumping and bumping along. -- The Horn Book Magazine

Praise for To Market! To Market:

A series of playful, rhyming verses that use repeated words to good effect. Scanziani, an Italian artist living in India, matches the words with dazzling colors and rhythmically repeated forms in paintings that create a vivid sense of the market, while echoing the girl's imaginative play through the addition of a few fantastic elements. . . Libraries seeking accessible international books for children will welcome this colorful choice. -- Booklist

About the Author

Anushka Ravishankar: Dubbed India s Dr. Seuss, children everywhere are enchanted by the nonsensical and fantastical world Anushka creates. Tremendously talented, she is credited as the first writer to adapt the difficult nonsense verse form to the cadences of Indian English. She has won national and international acclaim for her jubilant verse-tales, and is now based in Delhi. Emanuele Scanziani, originally from Italy, is an artist and freelance illustrator who lives and works in Auroville, an international commune in South India. His paintings for To Market! To Market! arose from his love for the color and atmosphere of the local market in Pondicherry.
