This  is a collection of 2 stories I released earlier as ebooks, but they are now available as a paperback. This is yet another fruitful collaboration with a talented 8 year old girl Mishti Shah, who also did the illustrations for the story, The Mysterious uncle Uh-Oh. Mishti has illustrated the story Princess Lemon & Her Yellow Shoes. The other story in the book is, Scared Out of Her Wits, which I have illustrated myself. Both these stories are about the paralysing effect of fears and prejudices and the courage it takes to overcome them.


Princess Lemon & Her Yellow Shoes:
Kate has lots of shoes. She loves them all. All except a pair of pretty yellow sandals. She wants to throw the sandals away, but Mama won't let her do that. So she is very mean to the sandals. Then one day, she needs them for her Princess Lemon costume. But in a fit of anger she has thrown the shoes away. Will she get to be Princess Lemon? What happens to the poor yellow shoes? Are they squashed by a trash compacter? Read on to find out ...

Scared Out Of her Wits:
Shiv finds his friend Kaira draped over the stinky society dumpster. Intrigued, he taps her to find out what is going on. But the look of terror on her face frightens him. What could have happened to make her so scared? Read on to find out.
