Tired of vampires and werewolves? Pick up ‘Let’s Play! The Puffin Book of Sports Stories’.
A collection of 12 short stories written for readers who are 10 years and older, ‘Let’s Play!’ illustrates the winners, losers, underdogs, bullies, heroes and cheats of sports. Realistic plot lines about rivalries between schools and the challenges of balancing studies and sports make these stories easy to identify with. The book goes beyond cricket and covers sports such as hockey, table tennis, cricket, golf and basketball.
Introduced by Harsha Bhogle and written by an assorted group of previously published children’s authors such as Nandini Nayar, Anuradha Kumar and Khyrunnisa A., as well as bloggers and first-time writers such as Imran Kureshi and Varsha Seshan, each story is a perfect tale of passion and competition.
