This is a bilingual Hindi/English short story which helps to build the vocabulary of someone trying to learn Hindi using English. The book tells the story of how a young boy called Sonu celebrates Diwali. The experience is typical of what many Indian children growing in the west go through. The book includes the Hindi text, the English transliteration of the text, and the translation in English. The book is beautifully illustrated with hand-drawn charcoal paintings to go along with the story-line.
