Illustrated by Anura Srinath and published by Sandi Titus with Michael Meyler, Keerthihan's Kite is a trilingual children's book, the story of a small boy and his kite. The text appears in English, Tamil and Sinhala on every page, and the story is brought alive by beautiful hand-painted illustrations by Anura Srinath. The book is accompanied by a DVD of the story being read in all three languages, with animated images of the pictures from the book.

Keerthihan's Kite is written for small children. But the colloquial language and the trilingual text mean that it can also be used as a tool for learning a second or third language as well – for adults and children alike. For anyone who is not familiar with Sinhala or Tamil script, phonetic transcriptions of the Sinhala and Tamil versions of the story appear at the back of the book.

Further information, including sample pages from the book and sound files from the DVD, can be found on the website www.mirisgala.net

How can he make his parents believe the mysterious things that keep happening to him? And how can a young boy like him outwit a clever and sinister enemy on his own?
Mythil's Secret is a story about a young boy's discover of just how strong the bonds of family and friendship can be. Join him on this spine-tingling adventure as he leans to look within himself for courage he never knew he had.

Rambukwella has got into the imaginative mind of a pre-teenage boy and has given a wonderful story for children with a lot of local flavour. The book is certainly a page turner for the adventurous young – Elmo Jayawardene

Mythil's Secret is proof that there can be such a genre as Sri Lankan Fantasy Fiction. It's the sort of book you can read to your kids at night and find yourself equally arrested as they are whilst the story unfolds – Leisure Times

Mythil's Secret is that rare thing in children's fiction—a work that discusses both adult and children's issues equally well...Yet what takes Mythil's Secret beyond much children's literature, and where it really succeeds, is in its willingness to address the strengths, weaknesses and responsibilities of grown-ups, too, especially in relation to kids – CHA, An Asian Literary Journal.
