Lowji is an old fashioned kid: a great kid with a sunny disposition, who's looking to make the best of his parents' decision to move the family from India to the U.S.A. Fleming's writing here is cheerful and fun. Lowji meets an interesting assortment of American children and adults, and shares his observations through letters to his best friend Jamshed back home. The glossary of words from a whole host of languages (Hindi, Gujarati, Bengali, Punjabi) spoken in India adds to the fun. I think younger kids (third and fourth grade) who are not too jaded yet will enjoy meeting Lowji.
