Do you remember incidents from your childhood days? They usually leave a grin on your face. Those were days of unlimited time, play, friends, innocence, curiosity... Paromita Goswami's book: Grow up Messy gave me that grin and curiosity of waiting to see what Misry aka Messy was up to next. Messy's characterisation is superbly penned. You can imagine her in real life enacting the episodes from the book. Loved that she is tough (wont call her tomboy) and sweet at the same time. The language is simple and good. This book can be read alone by kids above 8yrs old, I think. My 4yr old didnt sit still to read so many words :) But its not just for kids reading. Adults would also find it interesting, let me clear that too.
This book is a lovely addition to your reading. Leave your judgemental brain out and enjoy this innocence filled book :)
