THE GHOST WHO WASN’T THERE (A RULEBREAKERS’ CLUB ADVENTURE)

THE GHOST WHO WASN’T THERE (A RULEBREAKERS’ CLUB ADVENTURE)

ABOUT THE BOOK

The Rulebreakers’ Club is a gang of five that’s stuck with the Worst Dog in the World. But they’ve found a way to get rid of him. All they have to do is catch a ghost, rob a bank and save the world. Easy, right? Wrong!

There’s extra trouble when Spike makes a new friend in Subramaniam the accountant, finds an admirer in Prasanna the world’s greatest bore, and is constantly at war with his arch-enemy, Kunti Devi the pissed-off cat.

How are the Rulebreakers ever going to get out of this mess?

SNAPSHOT REVIEW

  • Sowmya Rajendran’s writing is a delight, replete with humour.
  • The cast of characters is most entertaining.
  • Second in the series, this set has the makings of India’s own Five Find-Outers.
  • The plot requires some suspension of disbelief.
  • References to earlier book creates some confusion in the latter half.
  • Illustrations could have been more eye-catching.

CONCLUSION

This new adventure for the Rulebreakers’ Club is just as much of a madcap romp as the first book.

“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.”
