He contributed to Tara's highly acclaimed "The Night Life of Trees," and this is his first book as a solo artist.

Incredibly Beautiful May 25 2012
By blink - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Saw a few pictures of this posted somewhere and bought it from amazon later. It's very clever how the story changes from page to page. It's a bit like one of those images that keeps magnifying and magnifying, showing you more and more as you look at it. The illustrations are beautiful and understated. Well worth the price I paid for it.

Stunning Oct. 18 2012
By Angela Alvarez Velez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a book to be enjoyed rather than read. Beautiful artwork, intricate designes and clever layout give the text a whole new dimension.

One of a kind Aug. 2 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was not previously familiar with the artist or the poem. I am happy to be now.

On its own, the trick-poem is amusing but wouldn't have caught (or held) my attention otherwise. When paired with Urveti's artwork, the poem almost literally transforms into something more elegant.

I read many excited previews followed by rave reviews of this product before purchasing it. I can safely say it lived up to my expectations.

Tara books are making such marvellous books!
The feel of the hand crafting, the unique imaginations, the sheer pleasure
of reading, looking at, touching..
Ram Singh Urveti was also one of the artists in their 'The Night Life of Trees',
which is truly stunning.

Fiery Peacocks and Little Girls Sept. 26 2013
By S. Gemmill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book in June for my oldest granddaughter's 6th birthday and it was an instant hit. Her 4 year-old sister was fascinated with it as well. The 6 year-old was intrigued by the various ways it could be read and, being quite artistic, values the detail of the illustrations. I'm told both girls continue to ask for it every evening before bed. The book is a beautiful read: the layout is unique and gorgeous to look at, and the poem/tale holds the girls' interest which leads to the most imaginative conversations! Kudos to the 17th century author and to both the 21st century illustrator and book designer.
