Books illustrated by Bhajju Shyam
Alone in the Forest
Musa ventures out alone for the first time to collect firewood, where a loud noise and the dark forest frighten him. A squirrel and a cow calm the panicky boy who returns home safely without any wood — but with a good story to tell. Highly stylized folk art effectively conveys Musa's emotions in a fast-paced story and introducing a tradition of central India.
