Bijoy and the Big River: Blog tour round-up

Who did Bijoy take with him on his ferry across the Brahmaputra to the silk village of Sualkuchi?


"a welcome addition by Tulika books, as this part of our country is vastly under-represented in children's literature," says Sandhya Renukamba. Read her review on the ST blog. 
"...a tribute to the river as well as to the people and other creatures who have their lives entwined with the endless flow of water," says Vibha Sharma. Read her interview with authors Meera Sriram and Praba Ram and find out what led to the making of Bijoy here. 

"Like the majestic river, flow the pictures and the narrative together taking the reader along, sometimes happy, sometimes in awe, but always connected. A part of Tulika’s Where I Live series, the factoids add to the whole aura,not causing any breaks in the story," says writer and blogger Arthi Anand Navaneeth in her review of the book.
"Bijoy and the Big River is a very interesting book, filled with lots of facts on each page about the life in Assam. The accompanying photographs are very good! I give this book 4.5 stars," says child reviewer Pratik.
