Every day in the vast and vibrant city of Bombay, thousands of dabbawalla deliverymen transport hundreds of thousands of freshly prepared lunches in tiffin boxes, straight from workers homes and into their offices.

Well, almost never...When a secret note in a tiffin box goes astray, the consequences for a young boy are devastating. Separated from his mother and forced to work as a slave in a cafe, Kunal is sure that if he could just find his family, his fortunes would change forever. If a lost note was the beginning of his destiny, could he use another to change it?An evocative portrayal of fate and family in India.THE TIFFIN was shortlisted for the 2012 Book of the Year for Children Award by the Canadian Library Association.The novel was also selected for the 2013 Manitoba Young Readers Choice Awards shortlist, which gives young people the opportunity to vote for their favourite Canadian book.
