Peanut summer.jpg
And for a summer holiday read about summer holidays, read Yashodhara Lal’s Peanut Has a Plan.
It is the boredom of the summer holidays with her twin brothers that drives young Peanut to come up with exciting plans–which may sometimes lead to disaster …

Yashodhara Lal Sharma‘s charming story–based broadly on her own kids Peanut, Papad and Pickle–is sure to make the summer holidays exciting. The charming illustrations by Shreya Sen add to the fun.
