City of stories describes a sad city without any stories, then like floods after a drought, a city with too many stories, and finally finding balance.
Nobody in the city has time to tell a story, until Didi and a little girl start a tidal wave of stories, that washes over everybody. A fascinating fable of transformation of a city without stories into the City of Stories.

Another great book from Pratham’s Storyweaver platform.
Sample Text From The Book:
There was once a little girl who lived in one of the BIGGEST and BUSIEST cities in the world.
She really loved stories. But everyone she knew was too busy to tell her stories.
Her mother said, “I have to finish my work.”
Her father said, “I am reading the newspaper.”
