Through Grandma’s Bag Of Stories, Sudha Murty recreates the traditional way of storytelling, where kids sit around a grandparent, while getting mesmerised by one interesting tale after another.
As the book starts, the setting is that of summer, and a few children go on a holiday to their grandparents’ home in Shiggaon, Karnataka. They proceed to do what children do best - find someone to play with. They befriend the kids next door, and have loads of fun with them. From taking a fun picnic to visiting the weekly market, they enjoy every minute of their vacation. But their favorite thing to do is listen to their grandmother’s fantastic stories.
Grandma’s Bag Of Stories contains the stories that the grandmother narrates to entertain the seven young children. The tales are magical, and replete with captivating characters. Moral lessons are subtly blended in with the tales to impress the differences between what is right and what is wrong.The illustrations by Priya Kurian make the book more interesting and keep the young readers engrossed.
The stories feature several characters like a queen who discovers silk, a princess who is turned into an onion, a lazy man, an angry bear, cheats and kings, and mice and monkeys.
The stories are based on the author’s own childhood in Shiggaon, and the stories that she heard from her grandmother.

Grandma's bag of stories is indeed a great read. Sudha Murty's simple and lucid style of writing makes reading a pleasure. I was taken back to my childhood days as a young girl in kozhikode,where my cousins and I used to listen to stories from an old neighbour whom we used to call "Aai".An extraordinary lady full of life,she
regaled us with mythology and morals through her stories.
Mrs.Murty's easy flow of words and her ability to keep the children engrossed and create suspense about the next day's story is most appealing.Her stories inform,motivate and teach children to treat all human beings,(including birds and animals) with respect. Preeti Parekh.
i ordered the book for my little nephew, but ended up reading it myself. the book certainly reminds of your childhood days. N hats off to Sudha Murthy mam, for her story telling skills and impeccable style of putting across valuable lessons to children in very easy language.I only feel that there could have been more colorful illustrations.
Sudha Murthy writes with such simple language that she is an author any first time reader should start to do so. Reading as a habit has dwindled among young learners in colleges who I train for Industry readiness. I have realized that this author is easily accepted by the first time reader.
The stories do appeal to the women but some stories can pull the men.
It also helps me to highlight to them while i train that great communication skills is not using flashy language or a use of big words but keeping the language simple and short.
Sudha Murty needs no introduction. Her writings are always easy to read. They make you enjoy reading. This particular book will make readers to go through an experience which the present generation (which in case didn’t experience story telling as a part of daily routine particularly during summer holidays) get a feel of the story telling. This book made me go back to my childhood days, particularly grandma’s love and affection. Thanks a ton Sudhaji.
