Exert from the book:
Nikini was a little girl. She lived with her mother and father,
in a house near the woods. She was very friendly with the animals in the woods. One evening, Nikini’s father came home with a big gift box.
“What’s that, Thatha?” Nikini asked her father.
“It’s your mother’s birthday tomorrow,” her father said. “Oh!” Nikini was very upset.
“How could I forget my Amma’s birthday?
She would never forget mine.
So I should give her a wonderful gift,”
