What do you do when you want bouncy hair, but your mom applies only oil on your hair? What do you do if you are interested in farts? Follow Lalli and her siblings Shivi and Chonu, as they go on madcap adventures. Whether reading about a girl scared of injections, or a sewing-fanatic mom, these stories are intriguing, funny and lightly peppered with day-to-day adventures and misconceptions.
The book is very simple and easy to read.It has lots of interesting and cute illustrations. The drawings seem like scratchy-pencil drawings, which give each visual a personality of its own. The characters are very funny and are woven around the storyline, adding their part to the story.
There are several characteristics I have in common with the protagonist - Lalli. She is a curious and adventurous girl. I think that whatever Lalli did and felt is what I would have because we have similar traits.
I liked this book because it was interesting and very funny. I loved the illustrations too. I would have liked more details about the characters to be included in the stories.
