Kutak-katak… zoing-zoing… bzzzt-bzzzt… zzzk-zzzk… Salim goes from village to village sharpening knives. But who needs knives sharpened every day? Some days he hardly makes enough money for a good meal. Now, with Eid coming, he decides to try his luck on the other side of the jungle. Does he get enough work? Does he get a good meal? Cheerful pictures liven this humorous tale that ends with a delightfully ‘sharp' twist!

The story has it all!

Salim’s poverty and cultural background is sketched lightly and authentically; the idea of a knife-sharpener is bound to intrigue kids who may not have seen one; the story is quirky enough to appeal to kids and has a nice twist. And the illustrations capture the many moods and settings quite well. Goodbooks.in
