Nathan and I had a riot of laughter while reading this book. It was hilarious to find Ponnu trying so hard to remember the name of the food. This book is perfect for introducing different delicacies to our kids. A few delicacies like Onion Pakoda, Rassogolla, Gulab Jamun, Samosa, Chikki etc are very popular in every house and kids can recollect them while reading them.

The Author started this story about a beautiful village in Kerala. We had a few discussions about that state and it was fun to learn about their culture and their food habits. The illustrations portrayed the village very well and were a perfect book for a foodie.

Beautiful page filled with alphabet.
