Synopsis

Excuses, Excuses by Anushka Ravishankar

Late again! What is it now? Chased by a lion? Kicked by a cow? Meet Neel, who has the most noble intentions, all of which have a funny habit of going wrong ...Excuses, Excuses! captures the gleeful childhood dilemma of knowing the importance of rules but delighting in breaking them. A wildly absurd feast from Anushka Ravishankar, India's best-loved children's poet, and Gabrielle Maglou, zany artist from Reunion Island.

About the Author

One of our most prolific children's book writers, Anushka Ravishankar has slowly but surely been securing her status as one of the best children's writers of her generation. Her expansive talent shines most brilliantly in her works of nonsense verse - jubilant and artful adaptations of this difficult genre to the cadences of Indian English. Said to be the pioneer of this form, she has earned national and international acclaim for her nine verse books released over the last decade. Rights to her books have been snapped up around the world and she has over 12 awards to her name. Her books owe their success not only to her fabulous verse, but to her willingness to collaborate and experiment with many different artists and designers - whether working with Swiss textile artists or veteran Indian illustrators, the best aspect of Anushka's work is the cohesion she creates between the text, typography and artwork of each scene.

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
