      Our storybook, ‘The Boy Who Cried Tiger, and two other stories as told in the Sylheti language’ [fuaTae sillaito bag aise, aro duiTa kicca siloTi bashae] as a whole is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International License. It may be freely reproduced provided no alterations are made, the work is not used for commercial purposes, and appropriate credit is given.

      We published the storybook as a charitable community outreach project, crowdfunding to raise the initial printing costs, and donating copies of the book to London community groups. We don’t have any current plans for another print run, but we want the storybook to be available to as many people as possible, so we made electronic versions that you can download and print yourself:

      Happy reading !
