Some reviews…

“In her latest offering, The Fried Frog and Other Funny Freaky Foodie Feisty Poems, Sampurna Chattarji has outdone herself. With 60 esoteric and engaging poems spread over six sections, brace yourself for a roller-coaster ride …. a delicious treat for any aspiring poet or poetry lover.”

-   Riddhi Kamal Parekh, DNA, Sunday, August 1, 2009

“Sampurna Chattarji has an imagination that is compelling and will thrill all children and any adult who has even a little bit of a child in him.”

Aroma Sah, The Statesman, August 20, 2009

 “The poems, which include samosa feuds, idlis, unusual kids and scrawny city-kittens, are quirky, humorous and delightfully irreverent. Chattarji is in her element…”

Bijal Vachharajani, TimeOut Mumbai, August 7-20, 2009

“Though the title says it all, you may be tempted to throw in a few more expressions such as brilliantly whacky. And there you have Sampurna Chattarji’s book—one of the few on Indian poetry for children—in a nutshell.
