Who is Boodabim?

Alankrita Amaya


Alankrita Amaya is a children’s book illustrator and writer, with a portfolio of over 30 books for publishers like Hodder Education, Room to Read, Tulika and Pratham. Her books include Little Laali, Muft Ki Kulfi, Gutargoo and Boodabim to name a few.
Alankrita grew up on a healthy dose of picture books and cartoons until she discovered that she too could create fantastical worlds out of words and pictures. Much of her work is inspired by her childhood, hoping to spark curiosity and emotions in young readers.
She lives in Bangalore with her husband and cat in their cozy home studio called the Cookiehill Studio.
