The Thinklings!

Miramaya: Squelching, squirting feet, snuggling a wet cat under her raincoat, and Mira is all set to conduct a monsoon orchestra with Neel and Binka… ‘Cacophony Rocks’ is what it is called! After mastering some cools water games over the summer, Mira is warming up to box this monsoon! Biff, bam, pow!

Neel Aditya : Tanka, thunka, thuk, thunk, tissssshhh… Neel’s brain is buzzing with crazy musical ideas this monsoon – raindrop shakers, flying musical notes, leaf harmonica, mosquitoes singing duets, woodpecker on the drums, bats as sopranos (whaat, really?!). Up in his tree house, he’s created his very own Sound Laboratory. Enter at your own risk! And while he is at it, he thinks he has finally discovered a new species of frog! Go Neel!

Willabinka :  Willa’s first monsoon on Earth and he can’t stop singing (screeching, actually!!) in decibels loud enough to blow you out of the window! It is a good thing then that he does it while riding the darkest monsoon cloud! Along with his color-changing nose, he has a 100,000 voice boxes, one for each of the galaxies he has visited!

Isha and the Pumpkin, Story and Art By Aadrita Ghose

‘One day a girl named Isha went to the park. Then she saw a cave and tip-toed inside.

She saw a cage with a pumpkin.

Aadi's story 001

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The pumpkin shouted: help me! help me! I am trapped!

The girl then saw a witch behind the cage. She got scared and ran away home. The next day she returned to the cave and saw the cage empty. She tip-toed forward. Then she saw the witch pouring a fire potion on the pumpkin.

No! stop! Isha said.

The witch got distracted and the fire potion fell on the ground. Isha quickly picked up the potion and poured it on the witch. The witch died. The pumpkin changed in to a boy. He was Isha’s friend, Alex.

Isha and Alex returned to their house happily.

The End!
