Mathrubhumi releases 2 children's fiction books
Mathrubhumi has introduced two new books in children's fiction category. The books are written and illustrated by artists Balu V and Sreelal A G. The book by Balu is titled ‘Thavalakalude Helicopter’ and Sreelal’s book is titled ‘Pinkuvinte Adyathe Akashayathra’.
Popular writer Subhash Chandran released both the books. ‘Thavalakalude Helicopter’ was handed over to K Viswanath and ‘Pinkuvinte Adyathe Akashayathra’ to K C Krishna Kumar. While releasing the books, Subhash Chandran said that both the books portray the desire to fly.
“A children’s book becomes complete when content is associated with illustrations. When the author can illustrate too, it increases its charm. Russian writer V Suteev used to write and illustrate his books. Now we have two authors who can do the same in Malayalam,” Subhash Chandran added.
The book ‘Thavalakalude Helicopter’ tells the story of two adventurous frogs. A yellow frog which wishes to become world famous and a green frog which wants to fly like a bird and a little sparrow are the main characters in the book. Their attempts to fulfill their dreams make up the book.
‘Pinkuvinte Adyathe Akashayathra’ is about a little bird named Pinku which goes in search of its mother. Pinku, which is one of the migratory birds living near Kadalundi river, loses its mother during the journey to their native place. The book also includes some poetic lines to entertain little children.
