Farmer Falgu Goes on a Trip
by Chitra Soundar
illustrated by Kanika Nair
The clucking, the mooing and quacking of Farmer Falgu's farm is driving him to distraction...so he sets off in his bullock-drawn cart to find a little silence. Only, he hasn't accounted for the many people who'd like a lift who all bring their own particular noises with them: the phee-phee, pungi-playing snake charmer; the tap-tap-tapping dancers... A wonderfully simple story with delightful sound effects printed in coloured, slanted and curving fonts, a cumulative text and dashing illustrations. 'A tried and tested and very popular format with children; the writing and repetitions will be very popular with schools' (Jayne, Primary Inclusion Manager, Letterbox reviewer).
