The illustrations in 'Pinduli' are fantasic. My kids were totally hooked on the book and actually sat still. There's one illustration where Pinduli looks so sad, you just want to pull her out of the book and give her a hug. I love the illustrations more and more every day. This book is a great tool to help teach children that everyone is different and what happens when people (or animals in the book's case) get teased.
