Wonderfully expressed I would say. A city girl Nooni, goes to her village in Karnataka.

On hearing the story of a king who was given permission by celestial maidens to worship a statue of Shiva that was inside a step well, on some conditions. Nooni wanted to find it. She made friends with some other children and learnt to ride a cycle. On walking down the river with her friends she finds a step well. After informing her grandparents about this. The discovery of the step well was successful. What a wonderful book written by Sudha Murty.
