PEANUT VS THE PIANO

PEANUT VS THE PIANO

ABOUT THE BOOK

Peanut used to love the piano. But now it’s a big old monster that comes with lessons, exams and Moonish Sir’s scolding, and she’s had enough of it. But is this a battle she wants to win?

SNAPSHOT REVIEW

  • The cycle of approaching a new activity with enthusiasm and then losing drive and interest is a theme that many children and parents will identify with.
  • There are some funny moments in the book – and life lessons too. Be careful what you wish for – sometimes we don’t know what we want till it is taken away from us. There’s a lesson for both kids and grown-ups in there.
  • Shreya Sen’s illustrations are always fun. The antics of Peanut and her siblings Pickle and Papad are depicted in delightful fashion.
  • This particular hOle book is somehow not as engaging as one has come to expect of the books in this series. The story appears to be much wordier than usual and the illustrations don’t make use of the holes.

CONCLUSION

This chapter book is a whole lotta fun, yes, but a little less hOle than one expects it to be!

“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.”
