POONI AT THE TAJ MAHAL

ABOUT THE BOOK

On a trip to the Taj Mahal, Minnie secretly brings Pooni along though animals aren’t allowed in. But wait – the naughty cat slips off on her own adventure!

SNAPSHOT REVIEW

  • Pooni, the beloved green-eyed cat, is back! After Where’s That Cat?, author-illustrator Manjula Padmanabhan takes young readers on another exciting cat chase set against the magnificent Taj Mahal.
  • A fantastic spotting book for the youngest readers, who will keep looking for Pooni on every page, much like Minnie, the book’s wide-eyed and excitable young protagonist, does.
  • On every page, one can see spectacular views of the Taj Mahal from different perspectives, including a gorgeous bird’s-eye view.
  • Padmanabhan’s distinctive illustrations recreate scenes from everyday life beautifully, be it tourists of different kinds, people taking selfies and talking on their phones, and even Mr Guide’s smile-inducing expressions across the book.
  • A picture book that can easily be used by parents and educators to hone a child’s observation skills while enjoying a lively tale.

CONCLUSION

Pooni at the Taj Mahal will have every young and not-so-young reader saying, “Wah Pooni, Wah Taj!”

“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.”
