Dev and Ollie, Kite Crazy! Another Good Children Storybook

Assalamu'alaikum.

Hello! This is another children book review from me. Like last time, I received this book through my e-mail. You can get the paper back edition at Amazon, of course. This book I'm about to review is Dev and Ollie, Kite Crazy! written by Shweta Aggarwal. Let me just tell you about the book! Shall we? ^_^



It's Dev's birthday and his favorite present is a cool new kite. But there is a problem - he doesn't know how to fly it! Grandpa claims to be an expert and promises to teach Dev tomorrow but Dev is too impatient.
Ollie, Dev's bedtime magical owl, comes to rescue. Together, Dev and Ollie set off on an action packed journey to the one of the largest kite festivals in the world...in INDIA!


Yup! The story in this book is about a little boy named Dev and his magical toy owl, Ollie. Together, they have a magical adventure night to Kite Festival in Gujarat, India. There, Dev and Ollie met a boy named Rahul who was about to join the kite festival. Sadly, Ollie landed on some of Rahul's kites and broke them.

Dev and Ollie felt bad about it and tried to get another kites for Rahul. They went to the biggest kite market during the kite festival there, Patang Bazaar. And they met and old man, a kite maker. From there, the adventure kept going for Dev and Ollie. Will Dev be able to get the kites for Rahul? And who the old man really was?


I and my daughter enjoy the book. Although, for my 6 years-old daughter, the story might be too short and simple. This book suits to 2 to 5 years old, I think. It will be a great bed time story to tell. And, the illustration is colorful and attractive for little kids. 

At the end part, you can also find some facts about Kite Festival in Gujarat and a little history about kite. Pretty useful! For a children book, I give this book 4,5 stars. Good story, great illustration and so much fun to read. Oh, and there will be more books about Dev and Ollie, coming soon! Yeay! ^_^
