The Taranauts are here




I recently illustrated a children's book for Hachette. This is an exciting new series called Taranauts and it's been written by Roopa Pai . For more on the series you can go to www.taranauts.com. Considering the way kids were totally engrossed during the story telling session by Roopa at bookaroo, (www.bookaroo.in) the series is sure to be really popular. Here is the cover as well as some of the other illustrations for the book. The cover's been done using water colours and the publishers did a neat job by using lovely green foil while printing it!

You're brilliant! In case you're wondering how I got here, I work with Pratham and found a link to your blog on the Pratham Books blog. We regularly order Pratham books for our schools. Will keep me eyes open for your illustrations now. :) Keep drawing!

Cheers,
Sarika
