A Pinch of Magic

Books & Nooks

When you start reading this book, you may wonder how a book can be written about a spoon or how a postman can find an address that reads something like this: Second Largest Eechamaram, After the third Korattykanjiram with the J-shaped branches, Opposite Devil’s Horn Thorn Bush, Harrabharrapazham PO. But he does! The book is about the amazing journey of Aunt Mallu, a herbal medicine specialist, her niece Veena and their search for a long-lost teacher who once lived in the forest of Harrabharrapazham. Veena’s presence of mind not only helps her aunt, but also solves a mystery the teacher can’t sort out. The book is filled with family values and lessons from the jungle and tells its readers why it is important to preserve forests.
