Feeling hungry, Mrs Kapoor decides to cook a delicious dinner of all sorts of wonderful goodies. Finally, she makes a chapatti...which escapes through the door and off on an adventure of its own before Mrs Kapoor gets her hands on it once more!
A modern version of the traditional story 'The Runaway Pancake', 'Chapatti Moon' is a wonderful tale for reading aloud and sharing. The richness of the language and the gentle humour that pervade the text are perfectly matched by the joyful illustrations.
Wonderful for encouraging children to innovate their own stories in this style or to start them investigating and comparing stories from different cultures (The Runaway Pancake, The Gingerbread Boy, The Matzah Man, The Wonderful Cake), 'Chapatti Moon' is also a story about gathering, being together and sharing.
Lovely, lovely, lovely!
