Blue and Other Stories
Suniti Namjoshi, Nilima Sheikh, artist

Suniti Namjoshi, internationally acclaimed fabulist and poet, brings both depth and lightness of touch to Blue and Other Stories. Playful and gentle, each of these stories effectively traverses layers of myth to speak to both children and adults.

Nilima Sheikh’s paintings hang in galleries all over the world, including Australia. The sensuous colours and delicate textures of her art match and enhance Suniti’s subtlety. Blue and Other Stories is the coming together of two fine minds to create a contemporary classic.

Hidden stories of unloved queens, girls sprouting wings and wise old kingfishers surface in Suniti Namjoshi’s picture book Blue And Other Stories...The stories are simple but hold out a subtle message. 
Anusha Parthasarathy, The Hindu
Each story addresses our world in an oblique and gentle way and work on many levels. The stories can be read and enjoyed by children and adults alike. This is a great book which I hope finds its way into many school libraries across Australia.
Stephen James, YARR-A
A beautiful little book of fables and artwork for all ages. I recommend this book, especially to those who can share it with children.
