About the Author
From the Publisher
‘Students, I have a special announcement to make today,’ said Mr Jagmohan. ‘You are not going to have your sports or PT periods for a month.’ He paused, waiting for the disappointed exclamations and protests, but there were none.
He frowned and continued, ‘Mr Sunderlal is going on leave for a month and his classes will be substituted with—’
‘Karate!’ the school chorused, stealing his thunder.
‘Yaaay!’ shrieked Pranav, a Class V boy.
Now Mr Jagmohan understood why he hadn’t got the expected reaction. ‘That Shekhar must have spilt the beans!’ he said to himself. He gave the culprit a baleful glare and decided not to waste any more time.
‘Yes. Our chairman, Mr Vijay, believes that learning karate will help you protect yourselves from crime. He has arranged for a reputed karate master to teach you the basics of karate. He’s a grand . . . er . person, no . . . sorry . . . er . . . grandfather . . . I mean . . . grand teacher, I think.’
‘Shades of Captain Haddock,’ whispered Kishore to Amar, and the two tried to suppress their laughter, an effort that ended with a loud splutter that sounded like a bursting paper bag.
Mr Jagmohan hid his embarrassment by snapping at them. ‘Quiet! No whispering!’ He raised his chin towards the dignified figure. ‘He’ll tell you the rest.’
The karate master took the mic. ‘Call me sensei, but the name is Rajan, Anish Rajan.’ Amar turned to Kishore and winked.
‘Osu!’ Anish Rajan bowed. Everyone was waiting for this and kowtowed, to the accompaniment of a deafening ‘OSU!’
‘Phew! What a day!’ exclaimed Amar when he joined his friends, who were waiting for him in the ground. As usual, he was the last to submit his work. Mr Jagmohan was dying for a cup of tea and was incensed with Amar for keeping him waiting so long.
He was mad at himself, too, for insisting that the students stay back till they completed the assignment. He hadn’t reckoned with Amar taking his own sweet time. Ms Morrin, who had sent back difficult maths problems with Kishore, also figured large in his uncharitable thoughts.
As the maths teacher explained when he went to the staffroom after gulping down a cup of tea, ‘A punishment is a proper punishment only when the punished realize, from the punishing degree of difficulty of the punishment task, that they have been punished. Otherwise, what’s the use of a punishment?’ Mr Jagmohan’s head spun.
‘Why my camera?’ asked Kiran, spotting the flaw in the plan immediately.
‘Because yours is much smaller than mine, that’s why. See, my fatso Kodak won’t pass through the bars.’ Amar demonstrated with his more substantial camera.
Kiran wasn’t amenable to the request, and after a lot of persuasion, and against his better judgement, he reluctantly agreed. He handed the camera to Amar, who, getting ready to execute his plan, placed it on the broad bar running horizontally along the middle of the cage.
No sooner had he done that than a monkey who had been watching them with keen interest all the while leapt forward and, quick as a flash, snatched the camera away.
‘Hey, hey, give that back, you thief!’ shouted Amar, waving his arms like an octopus at the monkey, who bared his big teeth in a mocking grin.
‘Oh, no! He’s taken my camera!’ exclaimed Kiran, shocked. ‘Now look what you’ve done.’ He turned angrily to Amar.
‘I’m so sorry, Kiran. Let me try and think of something.’ Amar looked woebegone and scratched his head for inspiration.
The monkey also scratched his head with one hand, then, using both hands to hold the camera, aimed it at the boys, fiddling casually with it, much to the consternation of Kiran.
Amar, on the other hand, noticed photographic possibilities here and, saying, ‘Hey, it looks as if he’s taking a photo. Let me get a picture of that,’ clicked with his camera. The monkey immediately tried to do the same.

Another book in the Butterfingers series. It is a laugh riot. Amar a.k.a. Butterfingers misadventures continue....poor dear this time gets good pastings from his father. Butter starts with Karate, dabbles with rock band at a restaurant then turns to photography, longs for a Beard, as usual messes with his exam paper, Goes to a village with Kiran, his friend, and a misadventure can't be far behind.... I can go on and on about the book, but the joy of reading the book will wane. Hence to know more of Butterfingers (mis)adventures one has got to read the book. Everything is so well described by the author Khyrunnisa that one gets completely engrossed in the book. In short very enjoyable read. Smile never leaves one's face once you start reading.
Behind all the slapstick of crashing cameras and tumbling walls of china (the crockery, not the country),
there's a new scientific learning, a curious phrase, a famous line from literature--Khyrunnisa
has the nimble talent of mixing laugh out loud humour with useful facts 'that you read somewhere'--which could well win the alert reader, the final question in a quiz some day!
For regular fans of Amar Butterfingers--this is his 5th chronicle of disasters--it's another encounter with
the lovable loser and his argumentative father, their hilarious dialogues (sample this: Dad: No! I won't have kittens at home...Amar: Not you, Dad, it's the cat that'll have kittens...(!) his questioning of English phrases ( isn't it life threatening to be born with a silver spoon in your mouth?) or even the rules of grammar: (is it samosas or samosae?). Never a dull moment for boys and girls with school-hood capers they can well relate to; good, clean (except the The Lost Fountain pen and its messiness) fun all the way.
Meanwhile I am all set for someone to ask me in a very tough quiz: 'Ailurophobia' is the fear of what??. No googling! It's much more fun to read the book and find out.
I loved the quirky characters, serendipitous endings, and the overall cheery Wodehouse-like atmosphere. But what stood out – and always stands out in these books – is the ingenuity, dexterity and precision with which the author uses words.
Don’t think that this book is just for little kids. A fun and funny read, I highly recommend this book for people of all ages who love witty language and who would like to escape into this sunlit world of 'Buttery' hijinks that the author excels at creating.
I really loved Butterfingers in the shorter format and I liked the variety of stories too. Can’t wait for the next one!
This is a perfect gift for kids. But adults will enjoy it as well.
