I loved this book! It is a charming and heartwarming story of a brave and resilient girl who lives by herself in Darjeeling. Tootsie Lama is an orphan who lost her adoptive parents in a landslide, but she does not let that stop her from enjoying life and having fun with her friend Tenzing. She is also very resourceful and clever, as she finds ways to earn money and get food. One day, she decides to steal a bowl of thukpa, a delicious noodle soup, from a restaurant, and that leads to an unexpected adventure.
The book is very well-written and engaging. The author captures the beauty and culture of Darjeeling with vivid descriptions and illustrations. The characters are realistic and relatable, especially Tootsie, who is a lovable and inspiring heroine. The book also has a positive message about friendship, kindness, and hope.
This is a perfect book for children who love stories with adventure, humour, and emotion. It is also a great way to introduce them to a different part of the world and learn about its people and traditions. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading delightful and uplifting stories.
Available on Amazon Kindle Edition and Paperback.
