an awesome read... imagination works wonders and Kapadia has done justice by stirring up the imagination with her protagonist Wisha and her companion, the Bookworm... good use of nonce words and not to forget the illustration by Roger Dahl.It is not meant for kids only... infact it inspires avid readers like me who want to become "writers" in the long run...

Wisha Wozzariter, as her name suggests, wishes to be a writer. Guided by the mentor-like Bookworm, she takes the Train of Thought to the Marketplace of Ideas and bids for an Imagination Balloon which she promises to pay for with half a bottle of Inspiration. She gets tossed out of the Superhero Salon and has to settle for an unlikely Hero (Prufrock, a

The imaginative story of Wisha Wozzariter (Wish-I-was-a-writer) who wants to write a story, but never sets about doing it. On a certain day, Bookworm pops up from a book she is reading and urges her to write a book, by taking her to the Marketplace of ideas. Thus starts a highly imaginative and adventurous journey à la Carroll's Alice.
Read between the lines to find sound advice for aspiring authors.
