An eye-opener for kids, the comic way!

About the book

It is a sweet story about a little girl Maira who learned a valuable lesson that ‘You don’t need some special powers to be a super girl or super boy. A happy face, good nature and helpfulness makes you a super girl/ super boy’. It is beautifully illustrated and presented making sure each kid would enjoy this reading journey. The story teaches children to be more giving and tolerant. Instead of being very preachy, the story acts as an eye opener for all little kids.

Happy 30th B’day Tinkle Comics

Yep, Tinkle Comics turned 30 today! Growing up, I’m sure, most of us have read Tinkle. At least one full volume. Even now, when I travel on the train and have forgotten to carry my books to read with me, I hound the nearest peddler for a copy of the comic! And, my favourite character is Tantri the Mantri!

Twelve-year-old Elaine D’Lima launched the first Tinkle book on 14 November 1980.
