Favourite Stories for Boys
Favourite Stories for Boys
Description
Back of the Book

Book cricket, beetle races, bows and arrows, inkball fights in school. Boys will be boys.

Witty boys, sporty boys, befuddled boys, mean boys. You’ll find all kinds of boys in these pages-there is a rising cricket star who finds himself dangling from a tree on the day of the big match; a grandson with a great-grandfather whose dark secrets appear from beyond the grave; a fat boy bullied by his classmates till he is helped by an unexpected person. There is also one who can’t tell left from right, much to his teacher’s fury; Amin, who faces up to a terrorist in the middle of a dog show; and Kari, who gets sucked into a parallel universe on his way back from the Principal’s office.

Favourite Stories for Boys brings together stories written specially for boys by the finest children’s writers in India-Ruskin Bond, Ranjit Lal, Shashi Warrier, Jerry Pinto, Poile Sengupta, Asha Nehemiah, Paro Anand, and many others. Funny, scary, exciting, thought-provoking, these stories for and about boys are sure to become your favourites.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

Muhammad Arshad Nadeem
It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
Намаскар! Честно говоря, сомневался. Но сегодня получил свой заказ. Порадовала упаковка, упаковано всё очень тщательно и аккуратно. Большое спасибо, как раз подарок к Новому Году! Namaskar! Frankly, I doubted. But today received my order. We were pleased with the packaging. Everything is packed carefully and accurately. Thank you very much, just a gift for the New Year!
Ruslan, Russia.
