Hannah's Reviews > Grandfather Gandhi
I want to give this book to everyone I know. A beautifully-told story that provokes great questions about transforming anger into mindfulness and compassion.The lightning/lamp metaphor for anger and its channeling is an excellent one that even very young readers will be able to relate to. And the illustrations! So good. Arun's anger is translated perfectly in Evan Turk's collages of paint, fabric, and yarn--cotton, very appropriately. I also love that tea is a medium in his illustrations--he used it to stain the paper used for the some of the illustrations, and it helps make the vibrant colors jump off the page even more while imparting a warmth that reflects the relationship between Arun and his grandfather.
