#Review: Paati vs. U.N.C.L.E by Meera Ganapathi
PAATI vs U.N.C.L.E
Author: Meera Ganapathi
Publisher: Puffin Books
Meera Ganapathi’s new book is a treat for all types of readers. It serves nostalgia on a platter and urges the readers to take a walk down the memory lane when holidays meant visiting grandparents and playing Sherlock was the best pastime. When Inju and his Paati (grandmother) embark on the journey to catch the thief, the readers are in for fun-filled and adventurous encounters and revelations. Inju is like any other kid who adores his grandmother yet wishes to see her do something purposeful. He is inquisitive and questions the sexist mentality of the senior citizens of Parijat Retirement Colony. Of course, his Paati has her own methods to prove that she’s not only an old woman but a wise old woman.
Taut narrative with a smart kid as the pivotal character, Paati vs U.N.C.L.E is a delightful read. It keeps the essential elements under the wraps for as long as possible and the final revelation by Paati is equally interesting. Tracing the theme of who-dun-it, this book is laced with beautiful illustrations by Parmita Mukherjee.
Definitely a recommended read!
Best wishes to the author!
