It was a small island in the middle of a big river, and just large enough for Sita
and her grandparents to live with their three goats, the hens, a vegetable patch
and a peepul tree. But one day, the river fl ooded and took everything with it,
including Sita.
How will Sita survive when the angry river sweeps her away? Find out in this
classic story of courage and friendship, now in a brand new look.
