Illustrated with exquisite quilts made from Indian textiles, ‘Excuse Me, Is This India?’ is a roving travelogue through a child’s imagination. Drifting off to sleep beneath a picture-quilt made by a globetrotting aunt, the book’s young narrator becomes a bright blue mouse, swept away on an unexpected trip to India…or is it India? The answer to this question is coded in riddling poetry, as the confused traveller navigates her fantastical but all-too-real dream world. Brilliant nonsense verse captures the surreal cacophony of places, people and creatures that make up India.
