Reviews
"From beginning to end, Pillai has created rich, colorful cartoon-style illustrations with intricate details that give a nod to classical Indian artwork.... This #OwnVoices entry offers solutions as well as a healthy dose of joy."--School Library Journal

"Pillai utilizes vibrant colors and wide-eyed, smiling faces to sustain the optimism of this sweet story of a little girl who just wants to be herself."--Booklist

"Bindu is a delightful protagonist whose emotional ups and downs are both familiar-feeling and fun to read about. . . . the ending is both realistic and uplifting, tying together a storyline that strikes an expert balance between drama and humor. A beautiful intergenerational tale about the importance of embracing the parts of ourselves that others may find strange."--Kirkus

"...narrative effectively highlights the way a warm grandparent-child relationship can keep culture alive." -- Publishers Weekly
