About: Ditya and Anjali love listening to their grandmother’s stories, particularly the scary one about the ghost in the tree. But the night their grandmother passes away, all her stories seem to lose their meaning. Then something happens that is more mysterious and magical than any story. Could their grandmother still be with them after all? Stunningly illustrated and told in gorgeous, poetic prose, this is a poignant and moving story about bereavement and healing.

I liked Ammuchi puchi because it was interesting and funny.I want to know more about the story.
The illustrations that bring the text alive are absolutely beautiful and vibrant. The picture book is magical and compelling and truly makes one question...or rather hope that the after-life truly exists.
This book captures the essence of a very special relationship - between a grandparent and her grandchildren. It took me down memory lane when my grandmother used to tell us wonderful tales. I loved the delicate balance in the story between the natural and the supernatural world while it maintained a sense of credibility all through.
