Let’s go time travel to a town “Malgudi” located in South India. We read superhero, fantasy, fictional and magical stories to kids. But there are very few books which describe the daily life of people from a town/city/state. We can teach many things to kids through by making them read about lifestyle of people.
Malgudi is a fictional town located in the southern part of India. This book is a collection of 32 short stories, in which each of them portrays the life in Malgudi. These tales are famous across the globe, which were also later converted into TV series. These tales for children include short stories like “An Astrologer’s Day”, “The Missing Mail”, “The Tiger’s Claw” and so on.
Malgudi Adventures: Classic Tales for Children is an extract of small parts from RK Narayan’s famous books and short stories. Readers will surely enjoy these short stories. The book will really take us on a ride to the Vinayak street of Malgudi on horse Jutka with just eight annas expense only.
