The Apoorva series written by Nandini Nayar and illustrated by Lavanya Karthik is a riot to read. Some characters stay with you forever and Apoorva is one such! This book is her story; she is twelve years of age. She has been asked to keep a diary. Apoorva agrees on the condition that she will only write about the twelve special meals that she eats over the next few months. Soon, however, Apoorva is chronicling not only the best meals she has eaten, but her constantly changing equations with the people around her. Formulas, equations, lists, and reasons crowd, the FIP award-winning novel, Apoorva’s Fat Diary, is an honest and hilarious read.
