Kittu’s misadventures

A story of friendship, family and fun, with a dash of craziness for good measure.

Book: Kittu’s Very Mad Day

Author: Harshika Udasi

Publisher: Duckbill

Price: ₹199

Life isn’t easy when you’re part of the World’s Most Chaotic Family. Just ask Kittu, who seems to be misunderstood and overlooked by all thirteen of his family members, except for Itee Fui.

In all the hullabaloo created by the extremely loud and incredibly close bunch during a vacation, Kittu gets left behind at a roadside dhaba.

But his luck is about to change, as he convinces an icecreamwala to rescue him, spinning tall tales about being a mob boss’ son. Enjoying the respite from his crazy family, Kittu soon makes friends with the icecreamwala’s daughter, ‘Mad’. She introduces Kittu to Janwaar Castle, a famous skateboarding paradise, complete with colourful graffiti and twisty-turny ramps.

Kittu seems to have found his calling, except for one tiny fact — he only has one leg, and walks around on crutches!

Does he succeed in skateboarding? Does he reunite with his family? Does he even want to? Read the book to find out about the rest of Kittu’s very mad day.

The book is illustrated with fun pictures of Kittu’s and Mad’s misadventures, by Lavanya Naidu.
