What is it about: Academic failure is plaguing Section A of the school. Section B guided by the very capable Padmavathi M’am is doing very well in studies. But then again there is only one Padmavathi M’am, the lone lady teacher in a school manned by 40 teachers. Will Section A ever be able to score cent per cent marks in Maths? Will anyone from the class bag the Seethalakshmi Annual Memorial Prize? A glimmer of hope arrives in the form of Elizabeth Thomas, a new teacher. Will Section A excel? Read the book to know more.
Why it stands Out: A wonderful lesson of integrity, hard work and perseverance. The story has a charm of its own brought out by the black and white illustrations by Geeta Gangopadhyay. In times when “cut, copy, paste” has become the mantra of many, this book is a great read for young readers
Will be best enjoyed by: Young readers above 10 years.
