thrilled to download and read your book. I read it instantly from cover to cover! I
must say I really did not know so much about then planets. And the story was told
with so much fun. Great storytelling. I think i can see you becoming a professor one
day Deeksha. I loved, simply loved the illustrations Praganya !! You have a great
style and a good sense of colour!! The book would be incomplete without your
Another reader Mr. Gurpreet wrote “Thanks for creating this wonderful book.
Reading it is such a delight and refreshing experience that I keep reading it again
and again. It feels like planets are actually talking to me and when I look at those
beautifull illustrations, it seems our solar systems comes to life. Looks that not just
Earth, but every planet has a life form which we are yet to explore”.
