ASHA AND THE SPIRIT BIRD by Jasbinder Bilan. Reviewed by Sharon Tregenza

 



Asha's father must work in the city to provide for his family but they haven't heard from him in a while. When the money runs out and the wicked moneylender threatens her mother, Asha decides she must go in search of him. 
    With the help of her friend, Jeevan, and the protective presence of a beautiful bird (who Asha believes is the spirit of her dead grandmother) the adventure begins. 
    Set in India, this is a rich tapestry of a book. Strong characters and an exceptional sense of place is deftly interlaced with fantasy to create an exciting immersive story.  
    With its themes of family and friendship and enchanting descriptions its a superb read. And just look at that cover. Stunning. Asha and the Spirit Bird is the deserving winner of several awards.
Highly recommended for ages 9-12.
