Thirteen-year-old Atiya will win the hearts of young readers. Although physically handicapped, her adventurous spirit takes her on lonely rambles into the wildlife sanctuary. She knows the ways of the jungle and its creatures great and small. Atiya Sardare lives with her dad, a forest officer. An only child, afflicted by polio, she finds solace and peace in the jungle, exploring it on short, secret, often dangerous treks. On one occasion she hears the haunting notes of a flute. It gives her goose bumps. She vows to learn to play the instrument much against her father s wishes. Her music lessons bring her close to the grouchy old anthropologist, Ogre Uncle, and his Kurumba tribal daughter, Mishora. Atiya s gift transforms her father s view, it calms the rogue elephant, Rangappa and helps nurture a blossoming friendship between a teenage boy and girl. Author Bio: Leela Gour Broome enjoys playing with words painting her puns into cartoons or cooking up real and imaginary yarns for children and anyone else who is willing to listen. She studied Western music and loves nature having experienced much of it first-hand in nine years of tea plantation life in South India. She thinks she is creative at craft, which she enjoys with her granddaughter. For sixteen glorious years she conducted nature and environment camps for kids she considers all her campers a part of her own family and from all accounts its a feeling that s apparently mutual. She collects quirky, decorative cows and has them all over her farmhouse. She is married to a diehard gentleman farmer and lives on an organic, wooded farm outside Pune, with a menagerie of pets, resident and migratory birds and some wild animals.
