In Poondy, the fruit always falls–from the jackfruit, coconut and toddy trees–causing many injuries to its inhabitants. That’s why they all wear fruit-helmets. For BIM, who has lived all his life in Poona, it is an odd and a magical place.
then one day,Bim’s mother, who drives a coffee-colored taxi, decides to move away from Poondy. Bim’s last two weeks in his hometown are full of strange and exciting adventures–from a bat attack to a bike theft.
Arjun Talwar’s debut novel is a mad romp through a town filled with eccentric people, and brought to vivid life by Shilpa Ranade’s beautiful illustrations.
