Lakshmi the water buffalo was usually friendly and cooperative. She loved the family that looked after her and they loved her back equally. Every afternoon, Gokul would take her to the fields to graze, and to the river for a swim. But Lakshmi was one stubborn buffalo. She wouldn’t allow anyone but Gokul’s mother, Hansa, to milk her. And one day, Hansa fell ill and had to stay in bed. Who would milk Lakshmi?

Set in the lush countryside of India, and accompanied by full-colour and black-and-white paintings, Lakshmi, the Water Buffalo Who Wouldn’t is a delightful read.
