When Nina goes in search of some turmeric, in eccentric Aunt Nishi’s spice shed, she doesn’t expect the shed to take off for India! There, she meets a mind-reading Mystic Sadhu; befriends Raj, a street boy who wants to star in Bollywood films; is cast in dazzling Maya Mistry’s new movie; and narrowly escapes from a Bengal tiger. She discovers that turmeric is taken from the thick orange roots of a plant with beautiful white flowers and is able to bring some back to Aunt Nishi. Nina’s magical travels make her school presentation on India a lot more exciting!

This warm, entertaining adventure about a British schoolgirl finding out about her parents’ homeland is an easy read offering plenty of excitement.
