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.
Create your own monster: Does your monster have noodle-hair, doughnut-eyes, a capsicum-nose, broomstick-arms and wheels for legs? Create your own rakshasa with fantastic props and amazing ideas. This is a free event for kids aged 5-10 years.
About the Author: Arundhati Venkatesh believes fantasy and reality are different ways of looking at the same thing. Her picture book, Junior Kumbhakarna, won the RivoKids Parents and Kids Choice Award 2014 for the best book by an Indian author for ages 0-5 years.
