The Katha Chest - Auslan Edition

A warm, child-centred exploration of family, history and connectedness.

Six-year-old Asiya loves to go to Nanu's house. Best among all of Nanu's treasures is the big old chest filled with quilts that tell the stories of the women in Asyia's family.

With gorgeous, fresh and beautifully colourful illustrations inspired by Bangladeshi katha quilts and traditional West Bengali pattachitra panel illustrations, The Katha Chest is a beautifully woven tale about the bonds of love, culture and memory.

Written and read by Radhiah Chowdhury with illustrations from Lavanya Naidu and translated into Auslan by Kate Frost and Auslan Consultancy.
