An absorbing, funny picture-book telling the tale of the most exciting day in Little Tinku's life!
The Maharaja is to be married and the whole palace is alive with hustle and bustle.
Tinku wants to help to make the day special. There must be something she can do! Can she march with guards? Can she play with the musicians or dance with the dancers?
Gorgeous pictures inspired by the art and architecture of Northern India, help to tell the heart warming story of little Tinku's adventures as she tries to find out where she fits in the world outside of her family.
In the shadow of the mystical mountains,
Deep in the tiger-haunted jungle,
Stood a city of flowers and fountains,
That was home to the marvelous Mogul.
In his palace of marble and jade,
With domes and spires of golden glory,
Tinku the elephant lived and played,
Now listen as I tell her story.
Tinku must overcome set-backs and face failure before learning the most important lesson of all: that, no matter what, she is always loved.
This beautiful book, told in rhyme, makes an ideal story for a child to read with their parent and has a surprise at the end. Can you spot the little mouse hidden somewhere on every page?
