When Neetu and Sanjay hear that Grandpa Chatterji is coming to stay with them, they try to imagine what he will be like. Will he be stern like their other grandpa? Will he be neat and tidy? They could never have imagined the Grandpa who arrives. He wears a dhoti, stands on his head and makes the most delicious pakoras. And when they go to visit him in India, they meet more of their wonderful, vibrant family. Three collections of stories about a very unusual grandpa.

Sanjay is a very funny boy. (Valentina) He is cheeky, mischievous, funny and naughty. (Lucy)Neetu is a girl. I really like her because she is funny. (Lilly)

Rahul and Radha are Sanjay and Neetu's cousins.(Rose) Rahul loves cricket. (Tallulah) and plays it every day (Oscar).

I like Radha because she isnt bossy or mean. (Jess)

There is also Hello the parrot, who copies everyone (Annie).

It is very good because they go and play fun games (Phillip)

I liked the chapter where Grandpa Chatterji told a story - the book was excellent to read(Elodie)

I liked the part where Neetu and Sanjay and Great Grandma went bathing in river. (Angel) I have learnt about the river Ganges and that they bathe in rivers (Amelia) I like the part where the turtles appear (Isabelle)

I liked the bit where Grandpa ate Grandma's cakes. (Tamsin)

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book for our topic! 19 Oct 2011
By Y3/4
This Book is about a family in England that go to visit there Grandpa in India. They play lots of cricket and have lots of fun. Sanjay and Neetu are cousins with Grandpa's grandchildren Rahul and Rhada.
This book is probably suitable for children that are four and over. It has a lot of words and seventy seven pages.

I would recommend this book because it is very funny and interesting. It is funny because the parrot is called "Hello". It is interesting because it teaches you about India. You would like this if you like cricket and you are learning about India at school.

Molly Davies

The book is about Grandpa Chatterji. He invites his family to India so he can see them. Grandpa Chatterji shows them all around India.

This book is suitable for children age 7 or older who want to learn about India.

I would recommend this book because it is funny and interesting.

Bella Smith

The book is about Grandpa Chatterji in India he has invited his blood relatives from England. Sanjay and his mum are very excited about going to India and they play proper cricket.

The book would be suitable for age 5 or older because it has funny parts in the story. It is good for girls and boys to read

I would recommend the book because it is very intresting. I also like it because it has cricket in it and it is my favourite sport out of all of them. My favourite part was when all of the ants come and try to get all of the crumbs off the floor. Cricket is Indians favourite sport and I was pleased it is. The bird is called Hello it always repeat what eny says.

Will Morris

This book is about a boy called Rahul and his family.

A good wee story with lots of interesting snippets about Indian culture versus English culture. I read this to some 8 year olds and they thoroughly enjoyed it.
