“The book, suitable for the 3–6-year-old audience (as well as older readers who might use it as inspiration for their own patchwork or memory projects), is one of love, reminiscence and family.” Books + Publishing
Six-year-old Asiya loves to go to Nanu’s house. Best among all of Nanu’s treasures is the big old chest filled with quilts that tell the stories of the women in Asyia’s family.
With gorgeous, fresh and beautifully colourful illustrations inspired by Bangladeshi katha quilts and traditional West Bengali pattachitra panel illustrations, The Katha Chest is a beautifully woven tale about the bonds of love, culture and memory.
