NINJA NANI & THE MAD MUMMY MIX-UP

NINJA NANI & THE MAD MUMMY MIX-UP

ABOUT THE BOOK

There’s a mummy at the Gadbadnagar Museum, a real live…er, dead…mummy. And it’s awake! And eating people! And it gets worse. Someone is chasing Ninja Nani all over town, trying to uncover her secret identity. When Deepu and his friends end up trapped in the museum with the haunted mummy, there’s only one person who can save them. But will Nani make it in time?

SNAPSHOT REVIEW

  • Lavanya Karthik’s super-granny series has a new addition with this adventure, where Deepu and Ninja Nani grapple with overenthusiastic wannabe journalists and a mummy who just won’t stay dead!
  • The usual cast of characters – old Mr Chitnis, Deepu’s parents, the malodorous Pongo, Deepu’s crazy gang and others – plus some new ones add much colour and hilarity to the setting. Oh, and the mobile phone catastrophes deserve a special mention.
  • The mix of text and graphic sections works well. This book has more text that its predecessors, which is a pity because Lavanya Karthik’s illustrations are a scream.

CONCLUSION

Funny and irreverent (with adequate mobile phone use warnings), the third instalment of Ninja Nani is as much of a hit as the previous books.

“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.”
