Review quote

The bright, colourful illustrations perfectly reflect the fact that Diwali is the festival of light and help bring the story to life. This book will be a great addition to my bookshelf at school. * K and O: Bonkers About Books * The whole story is adorned by bursts of colour and energy by Christopher Corr. * The Irish Times * Each double page is bright, full of colour and representative of the Diwali festival itself where colour is so significant. * Mamma Filz * It is a text that will work well at home as a story or in the classroom. This is supported wonderfully by Corr's artwork, and his signature vibrant colour schemes are a perfect match to the dazzling colours of Indian culture and landscapes. * Library Mice *
