Children are fond of mysteries and thrillers. The 'Mystery of the Missing Soap' is not just a thriller for children to while away leisure time but an unique e-book created to help them understand the essentials of hygiene and health very vital in the present outbreak of Covid-19.
The book created by Katha, a literary organisation working for children, is available in English, Hindi and Tamil. The Assamese and Marathi versions will be out soon. The storyline revolves around the evil Asura, Tobakachi, who wishes to conquer India by spreading the attack of the deadly Coronavirus; the e-book serves as an exciting one-stop guide for children to know how to protect themselves from the pandemic, as it is filled with interesting facts and do’s and dont’s that children should follow.
