In a small, sleepy town in northern India, three children gaze out onto a rain-drenched street, waiting for a most unusual guest. Their father's younger brother is coming to stay. Who is Younguncle? What?s his real name? Was he really, truly kidnapped by monkeys when he was little? Can he really make a noise like a sewing machine? Will he ever (heaven forbid!) Settle Down and Get Married? When he finally arrives, Sarita, Ravi and the baby know instantly that their lives will never be the same again.

Meet India's newest and most engaging literary creation, as he outwits the local hoodlums, rescues the town's finest milk-cow, evades the baby's schemes to eat his shirts, flummoxes unwanted in-laws, plucks the hair from a sleeping tiger's tail, and generally turns the world upside-down. The adventures of Younguncle and his family will entertain, delight and amuse readers of any age -- from babies to ancient old fossils.

"Vandana Singh is a fresh, new voice in children's fiction, this book is a treat that has you turning the pages with a smile and the last page with a sigh." -- R. Sriram, CEO & MD, Crossword Bookstores

"One of the best children's books I saw this year, Younguncle Comes to Town has none of the self-consciousness you often find in adults who write for children, very plausible dilemmas and a delightful style" -- Nilanjana Roy, Business Standard

"Vandana Singh is a most promising and original young writer" -- Ursula K. LeGuin, author of The Earthsea Trilogy

"I never got to tell him I'm sorry."

Meet Maya Subramaniam: thirteen years old, schoolgirl by day, Preferred by night. Throw in a pair of disapproving parents intent on stopping her forays into an alternate world, a two-metre-tall Watcher who can sense her state of mind, and a best friend who could technically be her worst enemy. Certainly, Maya's life is quite full, and the last thing she needs is an unpleasant involvement with an ancient conspiracy. But being in possession of a valuable artefact belonging to the renegade Warriors of the Shadow, she has little choice in the matter. The question is, should she believe a two-thousand-year-old jumble of calculations, or follow her instincts and trust her Watcher's logic? As events spiral towards a grim climax, Maya, Lev and their Watchers are caught in a deadly race. Will they win? And at what cost? Find out in the thrilling sequel to Payal Dhar's A Shadow in Eternity.

An adolescent caught up in a world of grown-ups, Maya finds herself in the middle of a Warrior conspiracy to see the Ai'diyar Prophecy to its conclusion. Homeless and confused, convinced that she wrecks the lives of those she loves, Maya finds herself doubting her ability to see right from wrong. As she and her friends stumble into the Timeless Land, she is faced with a choice that could have a devastating impact on reality as we know it.

When fifteen-year-old Samir discovers that he's got new neighbours, he's horrified: he's left certain 'secret documents' in their flat, which should not be seen by anyone - and especially not by a cute girl his own age like Akhila Handa! But to Samir's surprise and relief, Akhila is amazingly sporting about them, and pretty soon their friendship blossoms as Samir gets to know the family: the bouncy boxer dog, Akhila's younger brother Sumit, who is 'a bit slow', and their strangely withdrawn mother. And most of all, her jolly, affectionate father who dotes upon his daughter.

Dotes, perhaps, a little too much...

Samir slowly comes to realise that all is far from well in the Handa family, and an incredible and terrible suspicion begins to form.

Smitten is a story that dares to talk about sexual abuse within the family. It is a story of love, and its opposite. Of bravery and cowardice. Of tough decisions and loyalties sorely tested.

With characteristic lightness and sureness of touch, Ranjit Lal tackles one of the great taboos in Indian society. A must for every school library and bookshelf, the book includes discussion points and questions to facilitate conversations in the classroom or at home.
