When Miss Vee Noonie falls in love with garlic, there is pandemonium in the house. She is a vampire, after all! Her parents do their best to urge her to stay away from it. Garlic, they tell her, is fatal for vampires. Free thinker Vee’s research tells her that’s not true and she leaves no stone unturned in convincing her folks. Does she succeed?
Richa Jha celebrates a young thinking mind’s spirit of inquisitiveness, questioning the given, persuasiveness and non-conformist free will in this pacey picture book that is packed with sharp dialogues, intense passion, and chic humour. The breathtaking sweep of Kunal Kundu’s detailed etching and dramatic artwork lingers on till long after the book has been put away.
