Series nameChildren's Books

Suniti Namjoshi’s second children’s book is entitled ‘Aditi and the Thames Dragon’ and was published in Chennai, India, by Tulika Press in 2002. Namjoshi wrote this book after the children of Blue Gate Fields Junior School in London had read ‘Aditi and the One-Eyed Monkey’as part of a story telling session in Tower Hamlets, and had wanted Aditi and her friends to come to London. The nine digitised images in this item depict the first few pages of chapter five.
