Lavanya Karthik's beautiful and evocative Dreamers series gets to the heart of two great artists and how they achieved so much without giving us so much of the facts and details of their lives but by delving into their personalities and their inner realities. We don't learn about when Teejan Bai was born or which school Satyajit Ray went to but dive into their minds and imagination. Ray saw lights and shadows everywhere - light in their home, in the eyes of family and friends, in the stories that his mother told him every night, and the shadows existed everywhere too. The book explores the ideas and perspectives that shaped Satyajit Ray's vision and brilliance as a director and an artist. With Teejan Bai, we explore her fight for the freedom to sing and to pursue her dreams. By singing in the neighboring village, Teejan broke many stereotypes about women in the performing arts. The book follows her inner journey as she sings, catches the public's eye, and rises to great heights. These picture books inspire children who want to achieve all the things that their hearts may desire, no matter how impossible they may seem.
