Bhikhubhai's mouth waters for some coconut . . . fresh, juicy, grated, with a dash of sugar. But there aren't any in the house and he must go to the market for one. The problem is that he'd rather not pay for it.! This hilarious folktale from Gujarat follows miserly Bhikhubhai's desperate attempts to get himself a coconut — all free! Pictures in the book are based on the stylised painted paper scrolls used by Garoda storytellers in northern Gujarat.
Simply a laugh riot. The illustrations by Srividya are influenced by the Garoda (story tellers of Gujarat) style of folk art. Beautiful figures in bright colours are accentuated with thick black outlines. Simple patterns in the illustrations depicting village scenes
