Nikita's family takes pride in creating beautiful henna art, and she's ready to try her hand at it - but it's harder than it looks!

Nikita is part of a long line of henna artists. Her grandmother even brought a treasured notebook of designs with her to the US when she moved here from India. But the first time Nikita tries to make henna art, the mehndi paste looks like an ugly blob, and she feels like giving up. Still, she continues watching her mother and grandmother make gardens bloom on hands and is intrigued by the beauty of it all. Will she find the courage to try again?

New York Times bestsellint author Varsha Bajaj's poetic text and Archana Sreenivasan's dynamic illustrations perfectly capture Nikita's frustration, then pride, as she takes part in a beautiful family tradition.
