Kitab Khana and children’s author Katie Bagli cordially invite you to the Book Reading of her latest book- The Less Liked Lovables.


About the book

The Less Liked Lovables

Through the ages, humans have always believed in myths and misbeliefs about some animals: bats are supposed to be ‘spooky’, owls are associated with witchcraft; by touching frogs and toads, it is believed, one can get warts… Through the amusing stories in her book ‘The Less Liked Lovables’ author Katie Bagli has endeavoured to dispel these false beliefs and make one realise that all creatures are lovable and hold an important role in the intricate web of life.
