Description

How does a story of India begin? Does it begin with the three great rivers-the Ganges, the Yamuna, the unseen Sarasvati pouring her dreaming waters down from the snowy mountains to the hot, dry plain? This bewitching story within a story, set in magical India, explores the power of narrative to change the course of lives. Raka, the doomed young bride of a violent merchant, weaves a tale of rescue so vivid, it might just come true. She tells a servant boy the story of Farhad, a thief and unlikely hero, who must retrieve a famous jewel in order to save a kidnapped princess from a demon king. Farhad's unforgettable companion on the journey is a wisecracking white tiger with an unnatural fear of water. It is their unusual and funny friendship, and the final sacrifice that they must make, that is the heart of this grand, beautiful novel about summoning the hero within.F&P level: Z+ F&P genre: F

About Antonia Michaelis

Antonia Michaelis was born in Kiel in 1979 and spent the first years of her life in a village by the Baltic Sea with her pleasantly eccentric parents and a variety of cats. A year in Southern India after school gave her itchy feet which have since taken her to Peru, Ghana, Syria - and the British Isles. Antonia balances her writing life with her other career as a paediatrician. She has written several books for children and young adults.
