I liked it so much that I finished in just 2 & half days...!
She described so beautifully a journey of her grand daughter to a village in so easy words.
As I am pregnant now I become choosy in reading books, & here I am love to read her book as well love her way of thinking & describing small matters in so easy way...
I started to read her other books as well I ordered lots of books of her.. Right now I am reading her book "Man ni vato" (*in Gujarati language).
So inspirational & make you learn so many things.
I would highly recommend every book of her..
The main problem that Nooni faces is her inability to go ahead with the entire excavation of the ruins she and her friends stumbled upon by chance despite having an eighteen-year-old boy in their team of children. This is similar to most of the problems children usually face in which they have to take the help of the elderly or the experienced to achieve certain goals.
Though hesitant at first, she ultimately solves the problem by involving her grandparents, who in turn involve the village people as well as her parents, in order to get the job done.
Sometimes it is so easy to read and get lost in a children's fiction too, despite being an adult. Like in this book, especially at my age, I can feel my thoughts being reflected by the main (young) character, about 'How is it possible for everyone to be at the top?' while she remembers her father's words about how 2000 people apply where 20 vacancies are there for a job and how you have to be at the top, in order to get a good job!
Author : Sudha Murthy
Genre : Fiction
Pages : 203
My rating : 3 ⭐⭐⭐ 🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲 It is a story about twelve year old girl name Nooni.
She spent her time with her grandparents.
This is definitely one of the good novels for children. The story is engaging and captivating. There are so many things for kids to read and learn from the story. The books teach us about the village life and culture, the fauna and flora of forests, the virtue of respecting elders, culminating good and healthy relationship with friends. The unity and generosity of Ajji, Ajja, and all the villagers to help the archaeological people inspire us to be helpful to others.
