The call of the wild
Hudhud is horrible to everyone. He polishes off his classmates’ lunches, plays cruel pranks on his teachers and troubles innocent creatures. Until his strange new history teacher decides to set him straight.
The lesson? A curse! Now Hudhud must roam the vast earth . . . with-and as-the greatest migratory animals. His goal? To find the answer to all wrongs. And so begins Hudhud’s remarkable journey: as a blue whale calf separated from his mother in the deep; as a trusting caterpillar who befriends a hunting spider; as a competitive caribou on a perilous trek; as an Arctic tern too scared to fly . . . But fly across the world he must, if he hopes to ever return home.
Follow Hudhud on this surreal trip, through the Arctic Ocean and the Sahara Desert, among fragrant flowers and tall grass, and find out all about the inner lives of some majestic animals and the wonders of the wild.
Disclaimer: I was provided with a physical copy by Penguin India in exchange for an honest review. However, all the thoughts, feelings and opinions expressed in this review are my own.
The Globetrotters is a dazzlingly written middle grade fiction that uses the perfect combination of the author’s knowledge about the nature and the attraction of children towards illustrations to impart a wonderful lesson that every child needs to learn to grow up to be a good & kind human being!
Every single one us knows a boy like Adi @ Hudhud – a bully, arrogant & entitled boy who believes that everything he does or thinks is fun; even if it’s at the expense of others emotions! Maybe we were one; or maybe we were the receiving end of their jokes!
Hudhud and his friend, Sahil @Kilkila are having her usual fun, especially with the new History Teacher – but something that backfires on them; when she curses them to find the answer to the very important question – “What is the answer to all the wrongs?” And thus, starts the adventure of Hudhud & Kilkila; wandering about the Earth in various animal life forms!
Every adventure is accompanied by some very wonderful illustrations – and every adventure taught me something new about the world I inhabit; the animals that I never even gave a single thought to; with whom I shared this huge planet with!
The Globetrotters is a book that will definitely capture the imagination of any reader – but especially those readers who adore nature and wildlife & young readers whose parents want them to learn while they imagine the world around them!
Another beauty to pass on to my progeny one day!
