Book Name-Book Uncle and Me
Author- Uma Krishnamaswami
One day, as I was done reading all my own books, I went to the bookshelf in our living room and
found ‘Book Uncle and Me’ which was a middle sized book with a yellow cover. I am so happy
that I picked it.
I was fascinated by the story when I read the first pages so I decided to continue reading it. What I like the most about this book is that the story happens in my country (India) and that the main character is a girl who is funny and intelligent.
The little girl named Yasmin loves books like anything and can read a new one everyday because of the Book Uncle. Her love for books helps her to fight for Book Uncle to stay in the village. I think it is impressive that a girl as young as Yasmin is able to protest and change a rule and open the heart of the mayor of her village. It is a story about justice and I love it because I hate injustice.
I loved that all the disadvantages and injustice are turned into fights and become happy endings. Also I enjoyed the fact that there are many small stories in the story. The way all characters are different makes it even more interesting so I hope that you will want to read this book too!
I finished the book in half a day but shorter the book , the more I want to creatively imagine details of the
story. I will make sure to remember this book forever.
