Anushka Ravishankar
Select Preferred Format

What if your life depended on being able to tell a good story? Schariar, King of Persia, would marry a woman every night only to chop off her head every morning. He had sentenced the beautiful and clever Scherazade to the same fate. Determined to save herself and other women from this gruesome decree, Queen Scherazade began telling him stories one night — of magic lamps and genies, of fishermen and caliphs, of treasure-caves and strange potions. Tales so wonderful that the one night turned into 1001…. But what would happen when Scherazade ran out of yarns to spin? This new collection of Tales from the Arabian Nights will make you gasp with wonder and laugh with delight and the magical storyteller Scherazade will keep you spellbound for days.

Anushka Ravishankar

Anushka Ravishankar, often called the Indian Dr Suess, has been a pioneer in writing both nonsense in contemporary English in India and also picture books. Some of the earliest Indian picture books to be published internationally and win international awards were by her, such as Tiger on a Tree, Catch that Crocodile and Elephants Never Forget. She has gone on to collaborate with many international illustrators to create some extraordinary picture books.

More recently, her chapter books have also been much loved, such as Moin and the Monster and the Zain and Ana series. She is also the co-founder of the much acclaimed indie publishing house, Duckbill.

The blend of humour, realism and nonsense in Anushka's writing, as well as the charm of the characters she creates has won her many fans in India and internationally.
