Farmer Falgu Goes to the Market - by Chitra Soundar
Farmer Falgu has a plan. But as usual, it’s a plan that’s turned topsy-turvy by the madness that surrounds him. But then, Farmer Falgu can usually find his way out of any mess! Chitra Soundar’s energetic tale radiates with adventure and madness, while Kanika Nair’s visual style underscores it with minimalistic artwork splashed with just a dab of vivid, striking colour.

This is a lovely book. I'm so happy that I have a book that talks about Indian stories of today, that we could see around us. It makes it easy for me to talk about the market with my 2.5 year old. It's nice for him to be able to relate books, and songs with reality. It helps if we use voice modulations and actions to make the book more interesting. He can relate to the story and tries to make up his version of it which helps build his linguistic skills.
