Item description for Hen-sparrow Turns Purple by Pulak Biswas Gita Wolf...

Designed as a scroll, and silk-screened by hand on handmade paper, this is a cheerful adaptation of a traditional folk tale. Hen-sparrow falls into a vat of dye and turns quite purple. Her strange new color turns the entire kingdom upside down, but Hen-sparrow quite likes herself purple . . .

Inspired by medieval Indian art and narrative traditions, this visual and tactile treat has a clever feminist twist. The form of the book and the cumulative rhyme re-create the age-old magical experience of storytelling with pictures.

Winner of the Grand Prix at the prestigious Biennale of Illustrations, Bratislava.

"Beguiling and a wonderful introduction to the appreciation of a more global culture of the picture book."-Mike Simkin, Carousel Magazine, United Kingdom

Reviews - What do customers think about Hen-sparrow Turns Purple?

wondrous scroll!  Apr 26, 2002
A hensparrow falls into a vat of dye and turns the entire kingdom topsyturvy! The story is simple enough, but what makes this book very special are its design and illustrations. Designed as a scroll book, 'Hensparrow Turns Purple' needn't sit on the bookshelf... it's a piece of wall art!The luminous watercolor illustrations have a jewel-like quality which makes you pore over them, again and again.Not surprisingly, 'Hensparrow Turns Purple' won its illustrator, Pulak Biswas, the prestigious Biennale of Illustrations Bratislava Award (1999).Truly well-deserved.
