Book cricket, beetle races, bows and arrows, inkball fights in school . . . Boys will be boys . . . Witty boys, sporty boys, befuddled boys, mean boys. You'll find all kinds of boys in these pages--there is a rising cricket star who finds himself dangling from a tree on the day of the big match; a grandson with a great-grandfather whose dark secrets appear from beyond the grave; a fat boy bullied by his classmates till he is helped by an unexpected person. There is also one who can't tell left from right, much to his teacher's fury; Amin, who faces up to a terrorist in the middle of a dog show; and Kari, who gets sucked into a parallel universe on his way back from the Principal's office. Favourite Stories for Boys brings together stories written specially for boys by the finest children's writers in India--Ruskin Bond, Ranjit Lal, Shashi Warrier, Jerry Pinto, Poile Sengupta, Asha Nehemiah, Paro Anand, and many others. Funny, scary, exciting, thought-provoking, these stories for and about boys are sure to become your favourites.
