Reviews for The Magic in My Fingers:

“The book’s art draws from nostalgia and provides a sense of comfort that comes from reading children’s titles. The author has kept the style crisp and engaging to command the attention of otherwise easily distracted kids. All in all, the book is an inspiring read for a host of reasons. But for young female readers, especially, it might strike the right chord and stir in them a passion to pick up and pursue skills and latent talents that they may have never thought of exploring until now.” – Mid-day

“We love picture books that have Indian classical music at the centre of the story. The Magic in My Fingers is special because it is a great narrative that has the young reader waiting to know more. A beautifully written and illustrated book, The Magic in My Fingers celebrates a girl’s hidden passion for music and her father’s discovery of the fact. Highly recommended!” Toka Box
