Akku is a lively, imaginative and adventurous two-and-half-year-old little girl. Growing up partly in Gurgaon and mostly in Singapore, she is the darling of her big joint family. From playing with her fishy friends and beloved puppy to discovering the wonders of swimming pools, sea beaches and food courts, every new experience fills Akku with joy and curious questions. She loves to scribble, draw and colour and her imagination runs riot with elephants that are red, crabs that have mustaches and unicorns that don't have horns. But the biggest adventure of all awaits Akku- her first day at school.
