Each book is packed with 96 colorful, fun pages with comics and additional features like ’’Fact Fantasy,’’ ’’It Happened to Me,’’ and ’’Tinkle Tricks and Treats.’’ The most awaited section of mine is ?It happened to me?, after reading it not a single word seems contrived or unreal or cooked up.

The original book can be bought at a small price of just Rs. 40. A brief introduction about the author of this popular author: Anant Pai was born in Karnataka, India, in 1937. He was very intimate with books since childhood but he also had a passion for publishing and comics. In 1954, he started a career in editing and publishing, finally becoming a junior executive in the Times of India Books Division. In 1967, the educational comics? series Amar Chitra Katha was launched. Anant Pai not only conceived of all of these, but also wrote the scenarios for most of them. The books continue to be an International success.

In 1969, Anant Pai founded Rang Rekha Features, India’s first comic and cartoon syndicate, and started the children’s magazine Tinkle in 1980.

Book: This funny-cum-enlightened book is best for students (of all ages), and also for people who loves reading light comics. Tinkle is also light to carry and easy to hold is the best entertainer for long journeys.

I read these (tinkle) a lot, when I am outdoors as I am sick of reading filmy magazines and other magazines as I regard them as advertisements-filled articles. As per my knowledge there are more than 200 collections of tinkle made especially for people like me. So Get Going??
