Product Details


“With any luck this reprint will introduce a fresh cohort of readers age 9 and older to Ms. Desai’s superb work.” —The Wall Street Journal

“Desai’s story-telling skill is as keen as ever, her evocation of Hari is…one of those rare tales that both children and adults can read and enjoy…. Desai tells this story, a fairy-tale almost, in English that is lucid, and evocative of the hopes, the fears, the smells and the sounds of a little fishing village getting ready for greater things… Village is a stylistic triumph that matches the victory of a boy and a girl whose grit pulled them through.” —India Today

“A very powerful story that fully deserves its place as a modern classic.” —Andrea Reece, LoveReading4Kids (blog)
