      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      What do the different tags like 'In Stock', 'Available' mean?

      'In Stock'

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Be good boys and girls or Horrid High is where you’ll go! Just like Ferg Gottin does in this children’s book by Payal Kapadia.

    Summary of the Book

    Ferg Gottin’s parents wish they could have returned him to a store, which would have been possible if they had gotten him from one in the first place! Instead, they settle for an alternate plan: sending him to a horrible school. Now Ferg has to brave Chef Gretta’s cooking, the painful gym class with the cruel Coach Kallus, and the psychotic mathematics lessons from Master Mynus. To top it all off, Ferg and his friends are sure that Principal Perverse is up to no good! Can they put a cork in his plans?

    A New High

    We at JBCN International School , Oshiwara were taken to a world of Vera Verbose, Little Ferg, Phil Fingersmith and Chef Greta among others. From forbidden chocolate, to hypnosis, from Principal Perverse's suggestion of a 'hideous celebration, and the 'Grand Plan' to the horrid teachers running helter-skelter when they were asked not to move to the final revelation. We were mesmerised. Payal has touched a cord in each of our hearts and her characters have come alive for us. With an intriguing...

    If you haven't read it, it is your loss!
