Book Description

1 Dec 2010
Nine-year-olds Churki and Burki are twins who lead a happy, busy life in their village with their grandmother. They spend the day fishing in the river, driving the parrots from the corn field, gathering fruits, and enjoying the outdoors, yet it is nightfall they excitedly await for story-telling time to begin. Both a fable and a recounting of a charmed childhood, The Pumpkin Girls captures the experience of growing up as girls in a tribal village in central India. Narrated and illustrated by Durga Bai, the well-known Gond artist, this evocative book straddles the worlds of memory and imagination.
