Three days to go before a killer asteroid will end life on Earth! Everyone is in a panic. Everyone, that is, but Vanita, who has things to do. Such as saving the planet.  She has a plan drawn up to the minutest detail. All pure science. With just a little help from fridge magnets, a little puppy – and a special ‘shrinking’ gift that she has. Manjula Padmanabhan’s cartoonist’s eye for people and their little eccentricities conflates with a supergirl story to give us this spectacular  science fiction for young readers. A side splittingly hilarious book from a master storyteller with her  tongue firmly in cheek and a straight face!

This book holds the promise of a fantastic adventure!

Manjula Padmanabhan writes a fantastical page turner that any young reader would enjoy. The gripping story is accompanied by illustrations that help emphasize its more comical aspects. Though the story could be considered science fiction the language used is simple, contemporary and accessible. However, Shrinking Vanita would also engage older readers with its subtle yet scathing indictments of figures of authority and how they react in the face of crisis. Tara Saldanha, The Book Review Trust

Whacky and original

Shrinking Vanita is a rollicking adventure story and a great beginning for young readers looking to experiment with science fiction. - Goodbooks, Goodbooks.in
