Sona and the Wedding Game

Written by Kashmira Sheth
Illustrated by Yoshiko Jaeggi
Published by Peachtree Publishing Company

Experience the magic of a traditional Indian wedding! Sona’s big sister is getting married and she’s been given an important job to do. She has to steal the groom’s shoes. She’s never attended a wedding before, so she’s unfamiliar with this Indian tradition–as well as many of the other magical experiences that will occur before and during the special event. But with the assistance of her annoying cousin Vishal, Sona finds a way to steal the shoes and get a very special reward. With gently amusing text and gorgeous, vibrant watercolors, author Kashmira Sheth and illustrator Yoshiko Jaeggi present a heartwarming story with inspiring themes of family bonding and the importance of ritual and tradition.
