Which is your most memorable stories from childhood?

Can’t think of many, when someone asks you about like that. But there are times when you come across a book or a story that brings all those childhood stories rushing into your mind.

I read this book a year and a half ago, in South Africa. A book that one would rarely expect out of India and definitely not when it was written. It's a sic-fi book: the diary of Professor Shonku, an eccentric scientist who travels to unknown planets and creates machines that can hear/sense the emotions of plants and flowers. His exploits are tremendously fun to read. You must.

Satyajit intends to capture and fire-up the imaginations of the young kids through his stories.

There is a unique simplicity in his stories that make them not only enjoyable and suitable for kids but also equally easy and delightful to consume by the older ones too.
i did not like it when i first saw it but as we say NEVER JUDGE A BOOK BY IT'S COVER it became one of the 3 best books i have ever read
Nice set of stories which I would have definitely enjoyed more as a child.
Simple but fun stories.
