Not everyone has two grandfathers quite like Amol’s! From the way they look to the way they speak, the food they eat and the way they think, they couldn’t be more different. But both are “interested in everything, afraid of nothing and capable of anything”. And they dote on Amol. This comes with perks, but it also means that Amol has to indulge them their quirks — whether it’s Appa discussing toilet habits loud and clear, or Ajoba lecturing bratty children in a burger joint on good citizenship! But when the going gets tough, Amol couldn’t ask for a tougher twosome to stand by him.

Sure to comfort and illuminate young readers

Shrinivasan's novel is sure to comfort and illuminate young readers, irrespective of whether they are in a similar predicament or not. It will serve to inspire similar courageous works in children's fiction. One can ask no more of an author or a story. From The Hindu Young World-Goodbooks Award 2018 citation

Subtle and evocative

The subtle and evocative writing lends depth to a story that can help start conversations on many themes normally considered unsuitable for children – grief, illness, and the loss of a loved one. Goodbooks.in

Written with both humour and sensitivity

Written with both humour and sensitivity, the book is as important a reading for parents as it is for kids. –“The Book Review”
