The Kindle version of My Little Karachi will be free this Friday and Saturday (May 19th & 20th, 2017).
In the story, ten-year-old Zameena knows about all kinds of interesting creatures that live right in the heart of the huge city of Karachi. Almost every home has a lizard like this. Lots of people are afraid of them, but the chipkali eats bugs at night (because they’re nocturnal); isn’t that a good thing?
