Get your child ‘booked’ this month on these fabulous tales


What better way to keep the children busy than with a good book in hand? SUBURB reviews these two extremely special Children’s Books that will be a hit with your kids in those lazy afternoons.

Book: Superfoods for Superheroes 
Author: Namita Mehra
Publisher: Harper Collins Children’s Books

Superfoods for Superheroes features ten fun stories about a little boy (who loves superheroes!) who discovers the surprising superpowers of everyday foods. Each illustrated story is followed by fun facts about the superfood and a kid-friendly recipe.

The book aims to help children make healthier food choices, educate families about the power of kid-friendly superfoods, create a positive and meaningful dialogue around healthy eating, break out of the typical informational nature of the health-food category and create an interesting narrative that puts the child at the centre.

About the author: Namita Mehra is the founder and owner of ‘Indian Spicebox’, a social impact business that sells organic spices packaged together with her cookbook in a signature ‘Spicebox Kit’. Her company’s mission is to encourage and simplify home cooking while feeding street children in India.

About the illustrator: Cecillia Hidayat is an introvert who speaks her mind better through her drawings. She lives in Ubud, where she now spends most of her days drawing, strolling among endless rice fields, and petting the stray dogs she meets along the way.


Book: The Secret Life of Debbie G
Author: Vibha Batra
Publisher: Harper Collins Children’s Books

The Secret Life of Debbie G. is the story of a sixteen-year-old who becomes an online sensation overnight. Except, it’s her online persona that hits big time. Set in contemporary times, where the number of likes, comments, shares, DMs and followers determine a teenager’s sense of self-worth, this graphic novel takes a close look at how social media influences their behaviour and affects their emotional health. Equal parts poignant and fun, this is a bittersweet coming-of-age story.

About the author: Vibha Batra is a copywriter by profession who has several books to her credit including Tongue in Cheek, a collection of poetry, and A Twist of Lime, a collection of short stories.

About the illustrator: Kalyani Ganapathy enjoys illustrating fiction and non-fiction picture books. Her books include A is for Anaar, Hambreelmai’s Loom, Janice goes to Chinatown, Amrita SherGil – Rebel with a Paintbrush and The Song at the Heart of the River.
