Summary

For Ju, old is gold. Her mother brings her hand-me-downs from the homes in which she works and Ju welcomes them like new friends.

She especially loves the well-used textbooks and the treasures sometimes hidden among their pages: pressed flowers, poems, even a dead butterfly.Then one day Ju discovers a sealed envelope in the maths book. It has a stamp but no address.

Ju`s Story is part of `Different Tales`, a project undertaken by Anveshi Research Centre for Women`s Studies, Hyderabad, to present stories about life-worlds seldom reflected in children`s books. In the hands of a sensitive writer like Paul Zacharia, the story of a simple discovery that Ju makes becomes a moving experience. Asma Menon`s strong, painterly illustrations suggest a sense of empowerment.
