Synopsis

Words rollick and frolic in Kanna's head, yet he hardly speaks. One day, he is at the cave temples with his aunt's family when the lights go off. How will they find their way back through the maze of tunnels? Everyone is frightened, except Kanna. Light or no light, it makes no difference because he can't see anyway. And as he confidently leads the others out, he finds himself talking… and talking… The words tumble out unleashing the chatterbox within – Kanna Panna! From one of the best known writers for children today comes this joyous story that neatly inverts the notion of ‘disability'. The warm pictures, sensitive yet strong, pick up the nuances to portray a child for whom having a visual impairment is just the way he is – and is even a chance to have some fun!
