An unusual case of illustrations leading to a book.

The author after having crafted 3D images out of an old book was inspired to write this story of a little girl who finds a purple feather dropped by an old owl. She sticks it into her hair. One thing leads to another and after traversing various enchanting lands, she finally reaches the most magical one of all – the land of books!

Well-laid out, with dramatic collage-style images, using common everyday materials, such a cardboard, paper and even foil, this book will be a great tool in the hands of teachers and parents to encourage children to conjure stories out of their own art efforts.

Simple story line and creative artwork beautifully come together to give wings to a child's imagination.
