Excerpt from the book – Maurya’s Magical Monsoon Morning
One Saturday morning, Maurya woke up when the sun shone in to his eyes through the curtains. He was excited, because he loved
playing tennis with his papa on sunnymornings. But, when he opened the curtains, he was surprised to see that it was raining heavily, and the sun was shining brightly through dark gray clouds.
How was that possible? He wanted to know. He ran out of the house in his pajamas. He lived on the 21st floor of a high rise building, but he was too excited to wait for the lift. So, he ran down lots and lots of stairs. Finally, he was out in the open soaking in the rain, on the lawn, in front of the building.
Maurya ran around the lawn whooping with joy. Suddenly, he noticed something strange. There was a tree laden with bright red pomegranates right in the middle of the lawn. Maurya was sure that
neither the pomegranates nor the tree had been there the previous day or ever before. Where did they come from? What was going on? Bursting with curiosity, Maurya plucked a pomegranate. It felt quite real. He had a sudden urge to taste it. But he could not open it with his bare hands. So he found a sharp rock and banged the pomegranate with it, till it broke open and the pretty red seeds spilled out.

Yes i did because i like fantasy stories.It was very cool when he turned back in to a boy.Also,i like waffles with syrup.
It was a little confusing because we thought it would be about a monsoon. We liked it because the boy turned into a coo coo bird and we liked it when Gamala threw her toys to scare him away.
Thanks for sharing your feedback. The story was set in the monsoon rains, but since it was magical rain I suppose it could have been at anytime. You make a good point.
What I meant to convey was that all monsoon rains are magical and the misty landscapes lead us to imagine all kinds of fantastic things.
Have a 7 year old nephew visiting & he enjoys reading.
Awesome! You can have a whole library here for him and not have to keep it around when he goes home :-)….Check out the categories on the side, and to narrow down age range select the age filters at the top, he will most likely fit the category “children” or possibly “older children” depending on his reading level.
