1. The Village Fair
2. Help! Help!
Mud dolls, swing wheels, stick-ice, pulivesham – Meenu is so excited about the village fair! But she falls down and her leg breaks. Now how will she go?
Unusual sounds add excitement to a familiar pattern. The sometimes onomatopoeic, sometimes alliterative, sometimes rhyming words that flavour the story are matched by a parallel set of onomatopoeic, alliterative, rhyming words in another language that enrich the child’s vocabulary. A collage of simple cutouts used imaginatively adds to the visual drama.
