THE MISADVENTURES OF BUTTERFINGERS

THE MISADVENTURES OF BUTTERFINGERS

ABOUT THE BOOK

Amar Kishen is not called Butterfingers for nothing. Wherever he goes, disaster hurtles along–and this time’s no different. You’ve seen him set fire to his hair, head-butt a teacher, score an own goal, send his chicken-curry-soaked bat flying…Can things get any crazier? With Amar, they can.

Now watch him tackle ghosts, pounce on his principal, knock a thief unconscious, stop time and get the life chased out of him by a nasty Doberman.

Join Amar on his adventures as he whips up a tornado of trouble!

SNAPSHOT REVIEW

  • Amar has aptly been described as a “desi William”.
  • The standalone stories makes this an open-anywhere-and-read sort of book.
  • Amar’s messes always working out in the end, making the book a feel-good read.
  • Considering these first appeared in comic form in Tinkle, one would have expected better illustrations.
  • The writing (and editing) could have made the stories crispier.

CONCLUSION

A fun-to-read collection of stories about the well-meaning Amar leaving havoc in his wake.

“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.”
