The Butterfly Lion
Michael Morpurgo

This is the first book that touched my heart. One of the best creation of Michael Morpurgo. The book has 128 pages and is published by Harper Collins Children's Books.

The book tells us a beautiful story of a boy named Bertie who lives in Africa and how he found an adorable white lion. The book depicts the friendship and the bond of love of the boy and the lion and the struggles that they face while growing. The family finds it difficult to keep a wild animal in their house and sells the white lion to a circus.

After that the books tells the adventures of Bertie after he grows and how he ends up in the world war and gets a bravery award. The conclusion of the book was really heart touching.

I really loved this book and I will surely recommend it to all the book lovers of every age, and I am sure that every one of them will enjoy this book

I saw my friends reading the book. They shared a very good review which inspired me to issue this book from the library. This is an amazing book written by MAC BARNETT. He shares his own experience in the book.

The story describes an incident happened in his life. He was an ordinary boy. He lived with his mother on the to p of a hill in a little town called Castro Valley. One day astonishingly the Queen of England called this small boy for a favour! .The Crown Jewels were stolen by someone and he was asked to find it. He was given his plane ticket and a stack of colourful British money for flying to England in search of the Crown Jewels. Read the story further to know more about his investigations and adventures.

Every line you read makes you laugh out loud. It is a complete thriller, humorous, hilarious - fully illustrated spy series.

The Magic of the Lost Temple - Sudha Murty

KV KANJIKODE LIBRARY     06:52:00  No comments

The author, Sudha Murty had written this book by the inspiration of a simple incident. She dedicated this book to Noomi ( her granddaughter Anoushka). 

Noomi is a student of Kendriya Vidyalaya Bangalore in 7th standard in the story. She is thinking of plans for the summer vacation. She thought of going to Somanahalli - the village of her father. She finds more and more adventures there. She had found the historical monument that describes the history of that village a hundred years ago. How? 

This story is all about her adventures at Somanahalli. She finds new friends there - Amit, Mesh, Anand. She is very interested in exploring.

I liked this book very much. I was more eager to read this book because in the starting of the story, there was a description of Nooni's (Anoushka's) lifestyle. When I read she belonged to Kendriya Vidyalaya, I was more eager. The school she belonged to had nothing to do with the story. Anyway I liked the story very much.

The village level of Nooni with Ajji, Ajja, Mahadevan, Amit, Medha, and Anand was very interesting. Nooni's anxiety to learn about medicinal herbs is also very interesting.

How did she broke the secret of the past of Somanahalli? Read this book to find out.

I did not read the Ramayana during the Ramayana month of Kerala calendar. For reading the big book and chanting the lines always seemed boring. I had a sadness in my mind that I did not read the Ramayana. So, I made up my mind to read the seven kands of Ramayana - Bala Kand, Ayodhya Kand, Aranya Kand, Kishkindha Kand, Sundara Kand, Yuddha Kand and Uttara Kand.

I issued all these books from the school library. I read the books published by Amar Chitra Katha for it seemed easy to understand and learn. Each and every incident was clearly mentioned in these books.

Since, there were 6 books (kands) published by Amar Chitra Katha, I could not read the 7th Kand - Uttara Kand in detail. But in the end of 6th Kand - Yuddha Kand, I could read the summary of the Uttara Kand.

I became really happy to read Ramayana. It was an interesting experience to read it. I felt that although it was an epic, each character in it played a role. Such as -
Raman - Love, Justice, Purity
Ravana - Selfishness, Arrogance Sita - Possessions
Sita (possessions) will always be with Rama (purity, justice, love) and not with Ravana (selfishness, arrogance).

Reading and learning Ramayana cleanse one's mind.

This is an exciting adventure set on the  Amazon River. The  main character is Maia, an orphan.This book will be really interesting for those who love adventure. When we read this book each lines could be visualised as it is an action-packed. Really one would feel empathetic while reading  the book about the girl who lost her parents in an accident. There are instance of humor also in the story. 

This book will make reading interesting in every aspects.
