Jaunty, insightful, and fun…
Endearing from the get-go, Nitin’s fun, informative debut picture book introduces young readers to the game of cricket as two teams set on to play the game. Readers get acquainted with the game as players from each team take turn to bat, and the equipment and rules are presented. The narrative bounces along at a merrily measured pace, and easy to follow prose with super short phrases and sentences moves the story along rapidly. The personality-laden, animating illustrations amplify the players’ earnestness and enjoyment and are pleasing to eyes. A world list at the end will engage young readers further, and the accompanied brief introduction to cricket helps to shed more light on the game. Featuring beginner level vocabulary and full-color illustrations, this picture book should please children who don’t know much about the game, as well as those who do. This is a fun romp.
