Buri and the Marrow

All new dual language editions of this book are TalkingPEN enabled, see FreeLINK for available audio.

Buri travels through the forest to visit her daughter but on the way she meets a lion, a tiger and a fox who all want to eat her. She tells them to wait for her return journey when she will taste much better. Her daughter comes up with a clever plan but will it fool the animals?

The rhythmic text makes this a joy to read aloud both in English and the other language, and with plenty of repetitive phrases it is a story that children love joining in with. The illustrations give a wonderful feel of time and place, of Indian landscape and food.

The story lends itself to all kinds of follow-on activities such as mask making and drama.
