Excuse me, is this India?

Publisher: Tara Books

A child goes to sleep beneath a beautiful quilt that their Aunt has brought back from India. He dreams that they've turned into a blue mouse who is flying off to a strange destination.

Where can it be? There's a cow standing on a sunny beach and a girl with a twig broom sweeping out her house. There are bandicoots, and an elephant outside a temple. Mouse takes a three-wheeled taxi and visits a shop selling fine silks.

But nobody he speaks to can tell him where he is! Can you tell him by using the picture clues?

A reissue of a delightful story told in nonsense rhyme, complemented by evocative illustrations of patchwork and embroidery using Indian materials.
