Nimesh the Adventurer: when the walk to school turns into an epic adventure

Published on: 26 April 2018

Nimesh the Adventurer is an imagination-firing adventure that celebrates diversity and inclusion in a fresh, creative way. It's helped along by some superb illustrations – take a look.

Nimesh the Adventurer by Ranjit Singh, and illustrated by Mehrdokht Amini, is a brilliant picture book that will mean you never see the school trip in quite the same way again. 

Published by Lantana Publishing, it follows Nimesh as he walks home from school and sees sharks, dragons and even a road to the North Pole. It's a big, upbeat celebration of creativity to transform even the most everyday moments. 

Try it on your next trip to school. Ask your child: what could the cars be, instead? Could the lamp posts be torches for giants? Maybe the zebra crossing is a portal to some magical world – right on the other side of the road?

You'll have a lot of fun thinking up scenarios as you read along with this book. The artwork is enticing and inviting, and there's lots to point out and talk about.
