Last Night I Saw a Dream

This picture book is based on a poem by Rabindranath Tagore, translated to perfection by Sudeshna Shome Ghosh. What will happen if you go to sleep and dreamed that the entire city has gone berserk? Roads, bridges, schools, buildings, maps and books have dislodged themselves and are running riot. Tagore rides high on a child's imagination in this quirky, funny and alluring picture book about a child who dreams that the city of Kolkata is dancing in mid air. Introduce your child to the simple yet poignant words of one of our greatest writers. Apart from being a fun and imaginative ride, this book also uses vibrant imagery and words that enrich a child's ear for the language. Children have a great capacity for original expressions, which is why poetry is a great genre for them. The words in this book unravel all on their own and reveal themselves to the young listener. It is easy, for instance, to picture this: The roads all slithering, like cobra snakes, Carrying trams on their backs, that fell with great shakes  We highly recommend this book for its subtle brilliance and literary value but more importantly, we think it is fun!
