Kyo and Obi - by Neha Mundhra
Kyo and Obi is a story about discovering the joy of self-acceptance and being who you are. Kyo, a beagle, and Obi, a mote of dust, through their light-hearted friendship help us to explore our notions about closeness, similarity, and togetherness, while acknowledging our differences, and our innate need to develop a mature, accepting sense of self. Beautifully illustrated in line art and coloured with soy inks, the book tells the story visually and in words.
