“Let’s play house-house!” decide Sunehri and her friends. So they put together some old plates and bowls, empty packets of chips, plastic bottles, a broken helmet . . . things they’ve collected while going about their work in the city on whose streets they live.
The game, loved by children everywhere, takes on a poignant note when played by those who have never known a home. The illustrations that are full of exuberance and detail bring out their spontaneous joy in a make-believe world, which lives side by side with the tough reality of their lives.
