Set in India, a young girl nearly drowns when a river overflows its banks and floods ensue. Raised by her cruel aunt and uncle, she finds solace in her mother’s magic flute.
Praise for The Flute:
“The dramatic illustrations create a strong, rural south Indian setting, with their quick black lines, almost-solid black bodies and bold use of red and blue, with just a hint of yellow for the moon.” — Kirkus Reviews
