It is such a positive book 😊
The writer has left so much for the readers imagination.... we are all guilty of boxing ourselves as well as others around us....while you read the book, you will keep thinking about real life similar characters that you have come across ......the creative illustrations on the inside of the book is also wonderful.
It’s definitely a must read for all age groups!
So many moments in the book that made me think, read again....
The issue has been dealt with beautifully in the writer's characteristic style and coated with her typical humor...this book so drives the point home...some situations in the book made me teary eyed too...a good read for all the parents out there!
Loved how the topic has been dealt with positivity and no melodrama.
It's a humourous read too.
Delectable language and the lively character of Kabir bring the story to life. While Kabir is desirous of going out in the world and exploring all avenues, his parents and his teachers want him to stick to the rules laid out by the society and strive to fit in. He struggles to explain his point of view as no one understands nor appreciates his thought process. Consequently, he is made to feel that he lets everyone down. Then one day, he goes missing and all hell breaks loose. His parents are guilty yet unaware. His sister knows somewhere deep within that she is at fault but in reality, she is not. His dog ‘shoo’ misses him terribly. But there is no news of Kabir.
The characters are beautifully developed and they are realistic and I could feel for Kabir all the time. Kavni is likable and so much the responsible older sister. The townsfolk, the school teachers and even the dog Shoo are so real.
The narrative is unique and leaves a lot for the reader’s imagination. The language is simple and the author has written the book in such a way that it touches a chord somewhere. There is humour, there is drama and there is sadness at times. The illustrations are beautiful and match the theme of the story.
This book is a must read for all age groups, especially parents and grandparents.
Flyaway Boy is a story of one such boy, who was different from others. He was always pressured by his parents to do well in school. They used to compare him to his elder sister who was good in studies. He was mischievous and always got in trouble in school. He felt ignored and not accepted. As a result he vanished. He thought noone really cared for him , so he just left his home and went away. What do you think happened ? Were his parents able to find him ? did they realise his worth ? To know more read the story.
I could totally relate to this book because this is what happens in our society . We try to be judgemental about everyone, even our children. This story is a must read not only for kids but also for parents because parents should realise that their children are individuals with their own unique thinking. We need to make our children realise that they are important to us rather than making them feel unwanted.
It is a short and a beautiful read. I loved the cover of the book, it is very intriguing , making you think what it signifies.
