Product description

All of us need someone to look out for us. Especially Asha: a brave girl in big trouble. She lives in the foothills of the beautiful Himalayas. But since her father left to work in the city, things keep going wrong. Money is tight. She misses her papa. And now he’s stopped sending his wages home. Why? When a cruel moneylender ransacks their home, it’s the last straw for Asha. From her den in the mango tree, she makes a pact with her best friend, Jeevan, to find her father. That means crossing the world’s highest mountains, facing hunger, icy cold and snow leopards. Yet Asha knows the spirit bird of her grandmother – her nanijee – will be watching over her…
