About the book
Kiki Kallira has always been a worrier. Did she lock the front door? Is there a terrible reason her
mum is late? Recently her anxiety has been getting out of control, but one thing that has always
soothed her is drawing. Kiki’s sketchbook is full of fantastical doodles of the Hindu myths and
legends her mother has told her since she was tiny.
One day, her sketchbook’s calming effect is broken when her mythological characters begin
springing to life and Kiki is pulled into the mystical world she drew.
There, she discovers the band of rebel kids who protect the kingdom, as well as an ancient,
monstrous god bent on total destruction. Kiki must overcome her fear and anxiety to save both
worlds – the real and the imagined – from his wrath.
But how can a girl armed with only a pencil defeat something so powerful?
