Review

Praise for What Will My Story Be? by Nidhi Chanani:

"Text is lyrical, whimsical, and inspiring, the vision of interweaving individual and collective stories both accessible and heartwarming. The illustrations of the brown-skinned protagonist and racially diverse aunties are gentle and playful. Wisely counsels looking to our past to find our future." --
Kirkus Reviews

"The art is vibrant, whimsical, and sure to draw in readers . . . Chanani has created an ode to the families we choose."  --School Library Journal

Praise and Accolades for Nidhi Chanani:

A Junior Library Guild Selection 2017; Amazon Top Twenty Children's Book of the Year 2017; Amazon Best Book of the month December 2017; Chicago Public Library Best Book of 2017; Texas Maverick Graphic Novel 2017; Northern; California Indie Bookseller Association Long-List Title

"Chanani masterfully turns the complex immigrant narrative into a magical and captivating work of art." -
-The New York Times

"Colorful and deeply personal,
Pashmina illuminates the experience of an Indian-American teenager and invites us to contemplate the power of our choices." --Gene Luen Yang, national bestselling author of American Born Chinese

"
Pashmina is filled to the brim with magic and heart." --Victoria Jamieson, author of Roller Girl

I Will Be Fierce, written by Bea Birdsong and illustrated by Nidhi Chanani (2019):

A 2020 Southern Book Prize Finalist

"A multicultural girl-power manifesto . . . Birdsong's repeated refrain underlines the unambiguous message of this sassy picture book, and Chanani's bold and energetic illustrations reinforce the text's punchy, feminist-y declarations. . . the book will find repeated use in the classroom." -
-Kirkus Reviews

"Readers will smile at the charming and clever interplay between the words and pictures, and even younger audiences will understand the subtext: Being fierce means being kind to others and finding joy. The bright, expressive illustrations are full of movement, giving purpose to the girl's adventure." -
-Booklist

"A simple, empowering tale that encourages children to be the heroes of their own stories. An engaging choice for storytime or one-on-one sharing." -
-School Library Journal
