    1. The art in this picture book is absolutely gorgeous. It’s bright and colorful and charming. Dulari Devi told the story of her life to Gita Wolf who simplified it and wrote it out. I think it’s one of those books that could be quite inspirational for aspiring artists. I could even see the art potentially inspiring some pen, ink and watercolor drawings (although I think that’s a fine line since it is a traditional art form).I think this would make a nice addition to our biography collection [...]


    2. This is the illustrated story of artist Deva Dulari. She tells how she worked in rice fields, cooked and took care of brothers and sisters, sold fish, and washed other people’s dishes. “Time passed and I grew up, but I still did the same work. I had never gone to school, so I was not trained to do any other job. Sometimes I wished I could do something else. Everyday was the same, as it had been from the time I was a small girl.”One day, she sees a group of children playing and makes a pict [...]


    3. Dulari Devi worked as a domestic until she discovered the joy of traditional folk painting in eastern India.

    4. Tara Books is an Indian publisher that's a commune of artists, writers, and designers who make remarkable handmade books: books that make me feel the excitement I felt as a child. This is a printed book, not handmade.This is a biography of one their artists - simple and unsentimental I had a lump in my throat as I read it. Gorgeous illustrations.


    5. This is a visually beautiful book telling a moving story with very simple texts & illustrations. It would be a beautiful book to share with a child or group of children & encourage them to follow their dreams


    6. What I didn't like: There is a word that is blatantly missing. Can you find it? Also, it was sloppy and boring.


    7. A lovely story told with some charming illustrations. Definitely took more than a few minutes to stare at each page and delve into the art. As usual, Tara Books does it again!


    8. Beautiful illustrations and a good, personal, biographical story. The cover will attract kids, and the illustrations.



    9. Cannot rate highly enough. Dazzling art and inspiring story that makes me grateful for what I have and excited to live my dreams. I loved it!!!
