Book synopsis/description:

Kanna is a small boy who is constantly admonished by his parents to do the 'right' thing. That would mean speaking with his chin up, or buttoning his shirt correctly. He, for one, prefers to be left alone, quiet, with the words tumbling in his head, often in rhyme.

While with his aunt and her family on a visit to the cave temples, the lights go off, and Kanna, who we are now told cannot see, helps them get out unscathed. That there is no light to follow comes naturally to him, and he is happy to help. The incident unleashes the words within him, and they keep tumbling out, often in rhyme.

The book is a fabulous way to teach children the notion of 'disability'. Kanna himself doesn't seem to care about his blindness; in fact he makes a new friend owing to just that. The word 'blind' is never used in the text, and the author leaves it to the reader to understand that Kanna is unable to see. The book in itself is a fine read, with good language used, wonderful illustrations, and even prompts a laugh or two.
