It did take me a little bit to get into the book - Vinnie has a very stream of consciousness sort of take on the world and it did take some adjusting to get used to.
The way he phrases things sometimes had a little bit of a simplistic approach, but it was consistent with his character's age and after a while, I settled into the story and it became less noticeable.
I did love how the author fleshed out Vinnie's parents and extended family - one of my favorite parts is when Vinnie had to figure out the chai tea situation.
Each family member wanted chai tea (which, yum!), but each one also had a set of conditions. (Like I'll have tea if so-and-so and don't give so-and-so tea with milk and sugar, it's not good for his health).
Vinnie ends up making a table which compared all of the relatives and their orders, which ended up being a lot of fun to read.
I also enjoyed the pictures in the book. I loved the simple (but effective) line drawings with their splashes of color.
They matched the tone of the book really well and enhanced the reading experience.
Definitely one to check out.
I am a fan of Sangeeta and her way of expressing things. The power of making you visualize the scene while you read words its just magical.. loveed the illustrations and absolutely witty style. I am seriously looking forward for more and more and more of her books... and yes a movie or a short film on Daal Rice.
A must read... a must must read.
