PNLIT invites you to celebrate International Literacy Day with “The Boy and the Drum” an engaging folk tale chosen especially for this year’s event by Pratham Books. The book, adapted from a folktale by Umesh PN and beautifully illustrated by Rajiv Eipe is different because it is written in a way that can be performed as a play or read as a story. Meet Umesh the writer here.
