Seven year old Pushkin, aka Petu wants to become a member of the Gap Club, but he must lose something very important to get its membership. In the meantime, the Club lands itself into trouble by agreeing to play a football match against fourth graders; the losers will be termed crybabies. Not only does this motley club not have a football to practice with, precious time is wasted as Petu does not lose the second important thing that will fetch them a football! Is there any hope for the Gap Club, and will help arrive in time?
With a keen eye on the problems that are unique to young 7-10 year olds, Petu Pumpkin Tooth Troubles is a delightful book for young children. The author keeps the narrative tight and simple, and the illustrations by Shilpa Ranade add tremendous value in expanding the depth of the story.
A definite hOle book to enjoy!
