Genre: Children’s book
Publishers: Happy Squirrel (Leadstart)
Area A: Text
The text has been organized in simple sentences. With numerous figures of speech like Onomatopoeia and Alliteration, the stories will be liked by the children. Narrative and entertaining, the story revolves around a young village boy (a round character who is not only mischievous but also carefree. The short stories have been compiled and placed in such a way that the children will, at no point, feel disconnected with the main character. His qualities are relatable, his lessons are important and the circumstances are pragmatic.
Majority of the children have the odds in their favour and get a chance to go to school and live an economical life. Through these short stories, our children can be sensitized towards the children who are not born with a silver spoon in their mouth. However, the grammatical errors will hinder the process of learning. Time and again one can spot incorrect punctuation and redundant beginning of the sentences.
Area B: Illustrations
The cover of the book neatly presents the main idea of the plot. The illustrations (in monochrome) strike the right chord and have been brilliantly done. The primary medium used in illustrations is drawing. However, colourful illustrations would have been better.
Area C: Characterization
The main character of the story is Barsau and the most dominant trait that can be identified is his impish behaviour. With the aid of exemplary description, the character of Barsau is well shaped.
Every child is carefree and jaunty. It is in their nature and we cannot change that. However, if we make them read stories that reflect the similar mindset and give out a moral in the end, we make a sincere effort in equipping the child with the ability to take the right decision. This book is a good read. It explores the mindset and the perspective of a young boy and encourages the young minds to become a part of Barsau’s life.
