KORAMANGALA:After the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival, Mumbai and Bookaroo Children’s Literature Festival, Pune, Bookasura is back on home turf at Atta Galatta. At the Bengaluru launch of Arundhati Venkatesh’s Bookasura, here are some of the events that kids and their parents can look out for.

A dramatized reading: Watch as a cool kid meets a giant with many heads - each with a moustache, fangs and broom-like eyebrows - who eats books. Watch a narrator use the power of stories, books and imagination, to battle Bookasura, the bumbling blundering book-eating monster.
