Favourite Stories for Girls
Description
Back of the Book

Girls, as everyone knows, are the best. In this collection, you will find that they can often be even better than that.

Plucky girls. Not-so-lucky girls. Bright girls. Short-of-height girls. Quick girls. Always up-to-tricks girls. Go through these pages to find the most exciting bunch of girls there is-Miss Patiala Junior, the beauty queen who plays a sharp game of football; Bela, a budding detective who investigates sandwiches and other such mysteries; Kavita, a spunky girl who stands up to a giant; Nina, the incurable mischief-maker, who lands in a weird school that threatens to mend her ways; and Maggi, the one with noodle curls, who learns that there is big comfort in little things. There is also a gutsy village girl whose admiration for a TV news anchor gets her brother out of a mess; a really short girl who works her way up into the basketball team; a chirpy Egyptian-mummy-fan who sticks up for what she things is right; a top-of-the-class prefect who suddenly finds herself labeled a thief; a clever schoolgirl caught between a bully and a scholarship; and a keen quizzer who discovers she can-really, actually-change the world!

Favourite Stories for Girls is a collection of stories-some serious, some funny, some in-between-about girls who are champions, each in her own special way. Written by some of India’s best children’s writers-all big girls!-Manjula Padmanabhan, Poile Sengupta, Paro Anand, Chatura Rao, Deepa Agarwal, Adithi Rao, Aditi De and many others-these stories are sure to become your all-time favourites.

Testimonials
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
Love your website and the emails

I love antique brass pieces and your site is the best. Not only can I browse through it but can purchase very easily.
Indira, USA
Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
Jigme, Canada
Thank you! You guys saved me... there were no other options online for the book I purchased today that I needed for a specific course. So thank you for carrying the book and the easy purchase process. I look forward to receiving the books.
