This book was created while I was talking to several children to find out what they thought of the concept. Many of them loved the concept and even drew up long wish lists. A sister and brother duo in particular, had an interesting and challenging wish list and I decided to give it a try.
Avantika* wanted to appear as an eye surgeon and Rahul* wanted to be an airplane pilot who flies a white plane with a blue line. Rahul was even more specific saying that he wanted to do something heroic in the book. They also added that they love mysteries. The result was “What’s That Sound?”
Once, I received the hard copies from the press, I met them. To be honest, I was nervous. They looked sceptical and took their time with the book. While I waited, I saw the boy feeling his pictures with pride as his older sister read out the story to him. When she finished reading, they both looked up with a smile. Rahul asked “Can we take it with us? I want to read it again. I like the story very much.” Needless to say, I was more than willing to give them a copy. Their mother was nice enough to reach out to me later and tell me that her children loved the book so much, that the book goes to bed with them every night.
