The Girl Who Hated Books

Top of page

Meena, whose name means "fish" ins Sanskrit, does not like to read. In fact, she hates (yes, hates) anything to do with books and reading. Which worries her parents, who love (yes, love) books, to the point of being able to read three at a time. One day while searching for her kitten Max, Meena is introduced to the magical worlds within books, and nothing, as they say, is the same after that. Based on the book by Manjusha Pawagi.
