“Woven together with words that tell of a fine friendship, this book beautifully captures the hustle and bustle of Mumbai in gorgeous watercolour sketches as the girls travel across the city engrossed in their conversation. It is a lovely introduction to India’s first planned metropolis for its youngest residents.”
