Synopsis

From two outstanding creators, comes a lyrical text and beautiful artwork celebrating the lives of children in a remote Himalayan village as they make their work into play. Janeen Brian's evocative poems, beautifully illustrated by Anne Spudvilas, reveal how the vital work of children in a remote village can be transformed through the imagination into joyful play. It is a new take on the concept of 'it takes a village to raise a child'. The text is fascinating and evocative, each poem showing what life is like in a Himalayan village for the children living there. The children are intimately involved in the running of the village - but like children all over the world, if given a task to do, they can turn it into play. For children in first world countries, this book is a window into a different kind of life, but there is universality about the chores described that all children can identify with.
