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.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
