It is hard not to notice Nabiya in Savita Teacher`s English story classes. She listens so hard that she hardly blinks! Slowly, she begins to explore stories, delight in their words, pictures and funny moments. This sensitively told story about a spirited young girl, who likes football as much as she likes storybooks, is based on the author`s own experience. Using a collage of colours, textures and drawings, the illustrations evoke Nabiya`s everyday world and her journey into the world of words.
