About the Author

Mamta Nainy is a children's writer and editor. So she divides her time between writing and editing for children, making doodles that only she finds funny and eating cupcakes. She loves travelling but is too lazy to do it, so she makes do with reading. She spent some years in advertising before an apple fell on her head while she was sitting under a mango tree and she had her eureka moment-she has written some eight books for children since then. Currently she works as consulting senior editor with Katha.
