Our author-illustrator Greystroke (a.k.a. Shyam Madhavan Sarada) made sure that everyone had a wail of a time at Bangalore Literature Festival 2016. His narration of the Chinese folktale 'Wailers Three' left everyone crying....mock howls and tears, of course! Doing a great impression of an old Chinese woman, and other characters, Greystroke demonstrated the timeless quality of folktales.
In this, the fifth edition of Bangalore Literature Festival, children stayed on to make a character from the book, a donkey. Greystroke took them through the paces, and while many a 'donkey' had only one ear or none, and more sticking tape than tail, it was a happy occasion for kids and their parents to mess with paper and go hee haw hee haw.
Thank you, Greystroke! And thanks to all who came to cheer us at BLF!
PS: Greystroke is the illustrator of The Magic Powder, Three for Free and our very popular 'Sister, Sister..' science series. Do also read stories he has created on Pratham Books' Storyweaver.
