Jai Ho! What an adorable book! Comparisons to Cao Wenxuan's Feather are going to be inevitable, though this is, in my opinion, a far better book.

Lali finds a feather in the field. She doesn't know who it belongs to, so she sets out to find its owner. Each bird that she encounters tells her it's not theirs (and why it couldn't be). Having no luck, Lali decides to simply have fun with the feather. She writes with it, sweeps with it, fans the fire, and even torments her family with it. But when

This book was delightfully illustrated and sweet. The language used was fun and I enjoyed that it mixed in some Hindi sayings. The illustrations were really gorgeous and helped keep my daughter engaged in the story. We both really loved the illustration of the peacock. The story, one of the importance of something simple that others might not understand, was simple and easy to follow.

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was a cute picture book about Lali, who finds a mysterious feather. Who does the feather belong to? Readers are introduced to a wide variety of birds during Lali's playful discoveries.

A delightful read about rejection and finding great value in the rejected. The illustrations are stunning. I read this via NetGalley, courtesy of the publisher.

I wish Goodreads showed the cover of this delightful picture book due to be released in 2020, because the art is gorgeous and the cover shows what a joyful book it is. The book tells the story of a little girl who finds a feather and goes from bird to bird to see who it might belong to. Each bird tells of why it's not theirs (theirs are so much better) so she decides to keep it. She loves it and shows the birds all the creative things she can do with it, until it's sadly lost. The other birds ...more

"Lali found a feather in the field.
Whose feather? Lali did not know.
Oo ma! Was little feather lost? Lali
set out to find feather a home."

Her mission leads her to rooster, crow, and peacock. They all assure her that the feather she has found does not belong to them.

"Cheeky birds!" cried Lali. "If you don't want
feather, I shall keep it."
And that is what she did!
"Feather and I will do one hundred things!"
Lali said.

Lali decides to use her imagination and show everyone how gifted her feather is.

I received a free digital arc from netgally in return for my 100% honest opinion.


Lali’s Feather by Farhana Zia has to be the cutest picture book. Lali finds a feather and she goes around asking her bird friends if it belongs to them, sadly they don’t claim feather so she keeps feather all to herself and does amazing things with feather. Lali cleans the floor with feather, she writes on the sand with feather, Lali even uses feather to fan a fire and make it even bigger.

A gust of wind comes and

Lali is a young girl that finds a feather. She attempts to find the owner of the feather, but none of the birds claim it. All of the birds claim why their feathers are superior to the one Lali found, however Lali finds uses for her feather. Unable to find the owner of the feather, Lali decides to keep it and impresses the birds with all of its uses. When the wind blows Lali's feather away, several of the birds offer her their feathers as replacement. When Lali refuses, a few of her bird friends ...more

I'll definitely be preordering this one. A fun story with good messages about play and creativity. Good supportive and repetitive language for younger readers too.
