The young authors have kindly given RNIB a copy of this wonderful version of the Diwali story to turn into braille, Giant print and Daisy Audio so that blind and partially-sighted children can enjoy it too. This is an great version of an epic story. It is aimed at children and perhaps because it was written by young people for young people it has a clarity of story without being patronising. The writers do a lovely job of voicing the characters and I really think that young people will enjoy the story being told to them by their peers instead of by an adult.
I would recommend it to any young person studying Diwali for school or who loves reading great mythic stories.
