Asha Nehemiah: The Best Indian Children’s Books of the Year

We asked some people who we know read a lot of Indian children’s and YA books to tell us about one (or more) really impressive book they read this year. We will be posting their replies over the rest of the month.

Asha Nehemiah is a children’s author living in Bangalore.

Super Zero (Puffin India) by Jane De Suza: Hilarious account of life in a school for superheroes where bumbling, lovable Super Zero goes through a ton of sh** (literally) to finally discover what makes him unique.

Captain Coconut and the Case of the Missing Bananas (Tara Books) by Anushka Ravishankar: Gorgeously designed quirky graphic novel with a wacky scooter-riding sleuth. Math, verse and mystery all brilliantly packaged by an amazing writer.

Where Shall we Go (Karadi) by Nandini Nayar: Charming, heartwarming story. Sameer asks Amma to guess where he wants to go on a holiday. Gorgeously illustrated.
