With exclusive designs that have never before appeared on Hische's hugely popular Daily Drop Cap blog, the Penguin Drop Caps series debuted with an 'A' for Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice," a 'B' for Charlotte Bronte's "Jane Eyre," and a 'C' for Willa Cather's "My Antonia."

Set in an exotic Eastern landscape peopled by magicians and fantastic talking animals, Salman Rushdie's classic children's novel "Haroun and the Sea of Stories" inhabits the same imaginative space as "Gulliver's Travels," "Alice in Wonderland," and "The Wizard of Oz." Haroun, a 12-year-old boy sets out on an adventure to restore the poisoned source of the sea of stories. On the way, he encounters many foes, all intent on draining the sea of all its storytelling powers.

RUSHDIE, SALMAN

about author

Born on June 19, 1947, in Bombay (now Mumbai), India, Salman Rushdie was British-Indian novelist. The only son of a University of Cambridge-educated businessman and school teacher in Bombay, Rushdie was educated at a Bombay private school before attending The Rugby School, a boarding school in Warwickshire, England. He went on to attend King's College at the University of Cambridge, where he studied history. After graduating, he spent time working in television and a brief period as a copywriter for an advertising agency, before pursuing a career as a writer. His first novel, Grimus, was published in 1975, followed by other notable works, including Midnight's Children (1981) and Shame (1983). Rushdie's fourth novel, The Satanic Verses (1988), led to accusations of blasphemy against Islam, and he was subsequently forced to go into hiding under the protection of the British government.
