Travel with our four feisty friends to a crumbling old haveli in Bhopal; to the Kalakshetra dance school in Chennai; pandalhopping at Durga Puja; and crime-busting in the gullies of Old Delhi.
Each story is narrated by one of the girls. Mandy, the fashionista babe, reveals a surprising brain beneath that perfect hair. Padma may be a computer geek, but she knows a thing or two about classical music. Jahan seems like the coolheaded type, but even she gets the shivers in a haunted haveli. And then there’s Charu, who everyone knows, is just destined to be a writer.

Butterflies and moths (Lepidoptera) are some of our best-loved insects, distinguished by their colour and charm. Their wings are covered in tiny scales, as suggested by their scientific name, composed of the Greek words lepido (scaly) and pteron (wing). They live everywhere in the world, except in Antarctica. There are ‘day’ butterflies and ’night’ butterflies, better known as moths.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS
Ivan Esenko presents the world of nature and invites the reader to learn more about the world that we are part of. His camera is his most faithful companion and its lens particularly likes to ‘capture’ those animals that live in close quarters to man. We take them so much for granted that we no longer seem to care for them. Ivan is their voice, he has become their ‘personal’ photographer.
David Withrington from Britain has spent most of his professional life working for the official agency, Natural England, where he was initially Author/Editor and latterly Senior Freshwater Adviser. He has a particular interest in birds and butterflies. He has many contacts across Europe through his voluntary work for youth and environmental conservation, including friends in Slovenia, a country which he has visited 34 times.
ABOUT THE PUBLISHER
Okaši is a Slovenian publisher with a vibrant programme.
At every turn, nature reveals its new face and discloses a myriad of secrets. This is why we have devoted a special place to it in our publishing house. We are the creators of books that delight curious children and their parents in their discoveries of nature: in the home garden and the nearby park, but also further afield, in the fields and forests.
At Okaši we keep pace with the times which is why have embarked upon several electronic editions of our books. We have added sound to these publications and hence a new dimension to the contents already there.
