About the Author

Gita Wolf has written more than 14 books for children and adults. Considered one of the most original and creative voices in contemporary Indian publishing, she has pursued her interest in exploring and experimenting with the form of the book and its status as a revered cultural object. Several of her children's books have won major international awards.

Durga Bai is a young tribal artist from the Gond tradition of central India. Gond is a ritual and functional art style with distinctive decorative elements, mostly painted on walls of houses, using natural colours. Durga constantly re-works and pushes the borders of the form to create art that sparkles with a distinctive energy.

A magical picture book for preschoolers and toddlers 21 Oct. 2010
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
"The Churki-Burki Book of Rhyme" is a magical picture book for preschoolers and toddlers that takes the reader into the exotic, rural world of Churki and Burki, two village girls of Central India. Filled with poetry, music, nonsense, and brightly etched illustrations in the Gond tradition, "The Churki-Burki book of Rhyme" describes daily activities such as gathering corn, driving off jackals and parrots from the corn fields, going fishing, gathering wood, and playing outdoors. From the call of the rooster in the morning ("Kikiree-kee!") to the Spider's Web game the children play with friends, readers and listeners will know they are in an enchanted world where sights, sounds, and senses are dazzled by differences.
