by Vinitha M on The Tale of Babban Hajjam

This is a picture book that depicts the barber Babban's courage and how he uses his intelligence to get out of a troublesome situation. The story sees the protagonist display his presence of mind in a light-hearted way. The book also goes to show that sometimes a person cannot keep a secret for a long time. He will need to let it out, one way or the other! What happens then?
