All the earlier Tinkle Digests of Anant Pai are very good and collectible. If you are not a millennial then most likely you would have read at least some of these stories in your childhood and re-reading them will make you very nostalgic. In general tinkle stories are not like dumb fairy tales or stupid super hero comics. Stories are simple, sometimes silly but kids will enjoy them. illustrations are nice. They reflect a strong indian ethos and are very safe to leave your kids with.
This particular digest has quite a few good stories. I like the one where four travelers tell each other incredible stories as part of a bet.
I only have couple of grouses with this
1) The size of the pages is too small making it difficult to read. It will be great if Amar chitra katha reprints a bigger sized version of these double digests even for a much increased price.
2) The book binding quality is also not good. After going through this a few times, most of the pages are coming out.
