Book Description

31 Oct 2002
Designed as a scroll, HenSparrow Turns Purple also makes a long wall hanging. This adaptation of a folktale tells the story of HenSparrow, who falls into a vat of dye, turns quite purple, and turns the whole kingdom upside down. The illustrations recall the exquisite art of Indian miniature painting.

5.0 out of 5 stars wondrous scroll! 25 April 2002
By richa kapoor - Published on Amazon.com
A hensparrow falls into a vat of dye and turns the entire kingdom topsyturvy! The story is simple enough, but what makes this book very special are its design and illustrations. Designed as a scroll book, 'Hensparrow Turns Purple' needn't sit on the bookshelf... it's a piece of wall art!The luminous watercolor illustrations have a jewel-like quality which makes you pore over them, again and again.Not surprisingly, 'Hensparrow Turns Purple' won its illustrator, Pulak Biswas, the prestigious Biennale of Illustrations Bratislava Award (1999).Truly well-deserved.
