What Shall I Make? was published in 2006. It was a little story that I had made up to entertain my son while I was busy cooking. This story has gone into multiple reprints and is one of the books by which people know me! It was named an outstanding multicultural book by the United States Board on Books for Young Readers, the USBBY, way back in 20100. This book has been published in the UK, USA, Canada and Pakistan.
For me it remains the one book that best captures the memory of a time when I had a toddler who listened in wide-eyed fascination to the stories I spun for him!
