In Focus - World Cup 2015

Flipkart Official Review

It is not easy to write a children’s book. There is a lot to consider – primarily, the child’s imagination. David Walliams does it again with Demon Dentist and as usual he ensures that there is a lot of humour added to the book.

Alfie’s world is about to change drastically with a new dentist in town. Things aren’t going as planned when it comes to children’s teeth. The tooth fairy is up to strange things. Evil is at work and no one knows who is doing it or why. Will the truth ever be out? Will Alfie be the one to discover it?

Demon Dentist can be finished in a day and yet you would want to reread it. It is funny and fast-paced and I think even adults would love reading this one. David Walliams knows how to get children to read and it is most evident in his new book.

Evil has clutched the town. Alfie is dreading to go to the new dentist and things aren’t going the way they were planned when it comes to children’s teeth. Demon Dentist is a good read for kids.

Summary of the Book

Evil is working overtime Kids are placing their teeth for the tooth fairy under the pillow but the next day they don’t find goodies or money but dead slugs, live spiders and other such creepy creatures. Alfie is terrified as there is a new dentist in town and things are not going the way they were planned. Will Alfie be able to find a solution to this and discover who is behind all this? Read Demon Dentist to know more.

Final Test Exit Sachin Tendulkar, by Dilip D’Souza, examines the minute details of the last test match played by one of the greatest batsmen of all time, Sachin Tendulkar.

Summary of the Book

Dilip D’Souza closely observes those two-and-a-half days of the last test match played by Tendulkar, at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai in November, 2013. The book captures the tumult of sentiments the match had spawned, the love and worship that was showered by the cricket lovers at the stadium, the choking emotion, and the match against the West Indies. This title discusses cricket from the olden days to the new, as Sachin takes to the pitch one last time. The deafening noise in the Wankhede turns into stark silence as the Little Master begins his walk back to the pavilion, marking the end of a glorious era. The author poignantly describes how there will be no more swearing and switching off televisions when he got out; no resonating chants of “Sa-chi-i-i-n, Sa-chin!” on the fields anymore. Final Test is a must-read for all fans of Sachin and of the game itself.

About Dilip D’Souza

Dilip D’Souza graduated as a Computer Scientist and worked in the software industry for many years, before turning into a full-time writer 15 years ago. He has, ever since, been an award-winning writer who has been associated with Outlook, Caravan, Mint, Hindustan Times, NYT, Die Zeit, Salon, The Hindu, Washington Times, The Daily Beast, and Newsweek among other publications.

Part comic book and part novel, in Flora and Ulysses, a young girl must guide a super-powered squirrel in fighting for truth, justice and the squirrel way.

Summary of the Book

What happens when a timid squirrel is sucked up into the mystic world inside a Ulysses Super-Suction, Multi-Terrain 2000X vacuum cleaner? Not much except gaining the ability to leap over tall buildings in a single bound, the strength to make it more powerful than a locomotive and the speed to make it faster than a speeding bullet. That is what happens to a squirrel now dubbed Ulysses by his caretaker, a young girl called Flora. Convinced that the poetic Ulysses is a superhero, though quite an unusual type, and that he has a duty towards the country: he must stop his arch-nemesis. The only problem is he doesn't have one yet. Melding detailed illustrations and comic panels, this book speaks out to the child in all of us, incorporating a unique set of characters and wordplay that introduces children to a wonderful world of language.

Go Set a Watchman
An historic literary event: the publication of a newly discovered novel, the earliest known work from Harper Lee, the beloved, bestselling author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, To Kill a Mockingbird. Originally written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman was the novel Harper Lee first submitted to her publishers before To Kill a Mockingbird. Assumed to have been lost, the manuscript was discovered in late 2014. Go Set a Watchman features many of the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird some twenty years later. Returning home to Maycomb to visit her father, Jean Louise Finch—Scout—struggles with issues both personal and political, involving Atticus, society, and the small Alabama town that shaped her. Exploring how the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird are adjusting to the turbulent events transforming mid-1950s America, Go Set a Watchman casts a fascinating new light on Harper Lee’s enduring classic. Moving, funny and compelling, it stands as a magnificent novel in its own right.

What if you can leave your life and its problems behind and go places - to other countries, worlds, galaxies and back and forth in time? Books are that one medium that will grant you full access to anywhere and everywhere, allowing you to escape into your imagination with rich descriptions of everything you might not otherwise get to see in your lifetime.

Reading books is a hobby that most of us do not devote time to specifically, but on a rainy day when nothing else seems interesting, a quick peek into your bookshelf will reveal hidden gems that will keep you enthralled for the next several hours. Books also improve your knowledge span, in small ways and big, and greatly broaden your vocabulary as well. Which is also why a bibliophile will always sound smarter without meaning to, than one who restricts the amount of literature that he absorbs from this world.

Indulge yourself or your children with boxed sets of timeless classics and family favorites; they will become hand-me-downs that will impart more character to the future generation than any heirloom ever can.

Helping you get ahead in life with an edge over the herd are the entrance exam preparatory books that give you all possible combinations of any test you ever might be interested in taking. Make your college life easier with text and reference books while professionals glean the most out of their jobs with supplements of how-to and technical books.

Open up a Pandora's box of literature for you and your kids with all the fiction titles in every language imaginable; instill nurture the love for books at an early stage, which is the greatest gift you can give your offspring, with age-specific book for children and teenagers.
