Avi has an extremely annoying habit of seeing the good side (pros) and the bad side (cons) of situations that life tosses his way-just like the curveballs his best friend HJ tosses while playing cricket. Only this time, Avi is in the soup. Just like the mama bear who is known to eat her sickly baby, Avi is pretty sure that his aai wants to dunk him in soup and eat him up. Even though he definitely would not taste good. Now, the only two options in front of Avi are fight or be fried. Avi's thoughts on this book: Pro: Reading this book will make you a smart cookie and feed your imagination, especially about all things wild. Con: Cookies are edible and Aai is hungry! Uh-oh. Dig in at your own risk.
