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

Girls, as everyone knows, are the best. In this collection, you will find that they can often be even better than that.

Plucky girls. Not-so-lucky girls. Bright girls. Short-of-height girls. Quick girls. Always up-to-tricks girls. Go through these pages to find the most exciting bunch of girls there is-Miss Patiala Junior, the beauty queen who plays a sharp game of football; Bela, a budding detective who investigates sandwiches and other such mysteries; Kavita, a spunky girl who stands up to a giant; Nina, the incurable mischief-maker, who lands in a weird school that threatens to mend her ways; and Maggi, the one with noodle curls, who learns that there is big comfort in little things. There is also a gutsy village girl whose admiration for a TV news anchor gets her brother out of a mess; a really short girl who works her way up into the basketball team; a chirpy Egyptian-mummy-fan who sticks up for what she things is right; a top-of-the-class prefect who suddenly finds herself labeled a thief; a clever schoolgirl caught between a bully and a scholarship; and a keen quizzer who discovers she can-really, actually-change the world!

Favourite Stories for Girls is a collection of stories-some serious, some funny, some in-between-about girls who are champions, each in her own special way. Written by some of India’s best children’s writers-all big girls!-Manjula Padmanabhan, Poile Sengupta, Paro Anand, Chatura Rao, Deepa Agarwal, Adithi Rao, Aditi De and many others-these stories are sure to become your all-time favourites.
