It’s Archie’s favorite holiday—Diwali. And this year she gets to share it with her friends and introduce them to the festival of lights!

Archana loves her family’s annual Diwali (deh-vah-lee) party, and this year she gets to share it with all her friends from school. She helps with the decorations and the food, and is eager for everyone to arrive. But once the party starts a thunderstorm kicks up and drenches the outside decorations and knocks out the power. Archie worries that everything will be ruined. How can there be a festival of lights without any electricity?

Mitali Banerjee Ruths grew up celebrating Hindu festivals with her family. She is an American living in Canada who sometimes still dreams about being an astronaut. This is her first book.

Parwinder Singh has been drawing since childhood. He worked in animation before creating children’s books. He loves exploring art styles and traveling to different places. He is the illustrator of Let’s Eat! Mealtime Around the World.
