About the Author

Since Labanya Ghosh cannot draw so much as a line, she paints with words instead. She lives in Mumbai, the greatest city on the planet, where she writes copy for ads and teaches school children by way of work. For fun, she embroiders, reads, and hangs out with Loco, her cocker spaniel.
Pallavi Jain is a Chartered Accountant whose penchant for art, and imagination made her switch to Graphic Design. Having completed her masters from National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad, she believes children inspire change for a better tomorrow. She loves exploring and experimenting with different media to create a magical world of her own.

Reviews

"The illustrations are gorgeous, there's not a superfluous word in the text. It makes the book a thing of joy - a lesson in adjusting, dreaming big and holding on to friendships."--Rachel Lopez "Hindustan Times "
"Climb every mountain, whether it's in Mumbai or Ladakh, what does it matter? If you look with the eyes of love, you will see beauty. The Mountains of Mumbai teaches us to look again at our city and at our world." - Jerry Pinto, author "The Mountains of Mumbai is a charming, vivid romp through India's largest city. It shows that no matter how different we seem to be, we actually have a lot in common - if only we have the imagination to see it that way." - Naresh Fernandes, Editor, Scroll.in "Woven together with words that tell of a fine friendship, this book beautifully captures the hustle and bustle of Mumbai in gorgeous watercolour sketches as the girls travel across the city engrossed in their conversation. It is a lovely introduction to India's first planned metropolis for its youngest residents." - Rishad Saam Mehta, author
"This book is a breezy introduction to everything Mumbai... I loved the minimal text--colour-coded, so you don't get confused on who's saying what--and the watercolour panoramas of the city's architecture... great use of wide spreads, and when laid out, could even be something to pretty up the bedroom wall. Effortless, non-preachy and with just the right hint of cultural tidbits, this book is a sweet buy to stir up some childhood wonder."--Outlook Traveller
"...this is a beauty of a book that speaks of homesickness, wonder, and, eventually, a whole new way of looking at a city's architecture, shaped as it is by the aspirations and demands of its inhabitants."--The Indian Express
