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.

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”
Words and images to explain grief better
How do you begin talking to a child about death and coping with loss? How do you explain to her why Nani or Ajja or Didi is no longer around? Now help is at hand in the form of three books that take on the difficult subjects of grief and loss. Bijal Vachharajani, children’s book author & sustainability writer
