Roopa Pai is the author behind our Eureka Series (also know by some as the Science series or the Sister...Sister series). Hachette India is publishing Roopa's new Taranauts series and the launch of one of the books is being held at Bangalore this weekend.
Update: Another launch will be held at Reliance Time Out, Cunningham Road at 4pmIf you are between 8 and 12 years old (you aren't? Too bad!), OR if have a child in that age group (you do? Lucky you!), do come over on Sunday, the 13th of December, for the launch of The Quest for the Shyn Emeralds, the first book in the Taranauts series - a sparkling new series of fantasy-adventure books for children.
The Taranauts adventures are set in a different universe called Mithya. There are good guys and bad guys, weird and wonderful creatures, a supersun called Tara made up of 32 rainbow-coloured stars, puzzles to solve and riddles to crack, very sticky situations to get out of, and of course the Taranauts themselves - three young, gifted (super)heroes called Zvala, Zarpa, and Tufan. Check them all out at www.taranauts.com!
The books are written by Roopa Pai (www.roopapai.in), a Bangalore-based children's writer who also leads student and children's walks at BangaloreWalks (www.bangalorewalks.com).
And oh, for the kids, there's going to be great prizes to win, cool takeaways, and, best of all, a feast of Mithyamunchies (in other words, food that is literally out of this world!). So definitely let us know if you're coming, so that we don't run short on the food.
Come, chase the stars with the Taranauts!
