RUN, IT’S BUTTERFINGERS AGAIN

RUN, IT’S BUTTERFINGERS AGAIN

ABOUT THE BOOK

Everyone’s favourite klutz, Amar Kishen, aka Butterfingers, has no problem getting into trouble…and that’s the problem!

Follow his mad escapades as he becomes a human cannonball, rides a runaway horse, takes up karate, acts as a Martian, oversees the great fall of China, tumbles into a river and tries his hand at fencing–with hilarious consequences, of course!

Close on the heels of The Misadventures of Butterfingers, this second collection of stories about the eternally endearing Butterfingers promises to be as rib-ticklingly funny as the first.

SNAPSHOT REVIEW

  • Like the earlier books in the series, this one too is an absolute delight.
  • Each story is complete in itself, so you can start reading wherever you want.
  • The stories have a nostalgic 90s feel, providing a different context for young readers of today.
  • Some of the descriptions are a little wordy, and the stories could have been tighter.
  • Considering the stories had their genesis in comic form, one would have expected better illustrations

CONCLUSION

Amar might be a walking disaster, but you can’t help liking him. Another charming collection from Khyrunnisa A.

“For a teacher or librarian faced with dozens of books to read, a good book review website is as essential as maps are for geographers.”

“Indian children’s books rarely get the kind of publicity they deserve in the popular or social media. Websites like Goodbooks plug the gap by not letting a single Indian children’s book of merit slip through the cracks. Most people would not even know about the books available in the market if not for a resource like this.”
