No doubt an auto is an object of fascination for kids. That said, with the auto as the theme, the book very well captures the attention of the kids. Of course, one must also be a good storyteller while reading out to kids. My about to be 4 yr old just loves the hero of the book: Toto the auto, and Pattu his friend and driver. There are 4 books (this review is for the series and not for just this book) and 2 stories in each; so, a total of 8 stories that have been published so far.
Some of the highlights are the details in the illustrations; they have been really well-thought out, colours, the moral in each of the stories, one page of activities based on the story (there could be more of these), and the pun in each story (where toto says one thing and pattu hears it as something else). Of course, for a 4-yr old saying a word called trouble and someone hearing it as bubble is also funny! :-)
So, in all, the series is amazing and a must-have for all kids.

I bought these four books as a gift for my niece in Australia, especially because she had enjoyed an autoricksha ride on her visit to India. It was a shot in the dark, but one that hit the Mark very well!
The books bring alive just very believable characters-Toto the auto rickshaw and its driver, Pattu. Together, they embark on one adventure after another, from a trip to the countryside, to saving leopard cubs in the Sanjay Gandhi Park in Mumbai to what not. Through these adventures, Toto learns the essential human values of respect and love for all, and hopefully so do the kids. And that's not all! All the adventures end with a song that my niece simply loves and you can also download the tunes of the songs from the website mentioned in the book.
Overall, the series promises a fun-filled read for children. (I must admit, I enjoyed reading them too!)
Give it a shot, it won't disappoint you!

The books are beautiful and very pictoral for my 3 year old. Good values to learn from them. He has started to love Toto and takes interest to know about toto's experiences. I love relating those behaviors to my little one.. Though I personally feel the language could be more formal for kids - British English.

The stories are fantastic and so apt for our Indian kids. The topics are handled with excellent sensitivity and simple enough for the message to be driven home perfectly. The activity page is cool too. Very effective. Please could Toto also handle topics like poverty / poor people / beggars; crossing roads; domestic help / live in maids; respect for elders.... I guess you all have a list already. Please keep them coming.

Besides her happy reactions to the stories, she enjoyed the activity at the end of each book...
She loved Toto all decorated for the wedding & was sad when she saw him less decorated in the story with the leopards. (Told her he knew he was going to be around so many animals.....& some animals might get sick with the flowers ...pollen etc - so he had to take it off before he went around there !!) & we went on to the 2nd book - she enjoyed the story of Toto saving the kids in the rains...but on the last story she found KKs red car more interesting than KK (guess thats cos she is not into the hero- heroine craze of bollywood- though she loves bollywood dancing & costumes !!!)
She was extremely enthusiatic - wanting me to scroll to the next page.... but she sounded disappointed that there was just 1 page of activity at the end of the book - but thats probably just her.....she always wants more challenges than most other kids at her age.
You are not going to believe this but I think the success of the afternoon reading came just now as I was typing this mail to you...her big toy tea-pot is not opening....& she was struggling . I said maybe you need to wait for dad to get home,since i can't open it either..... her quick reaction "Mum, do u think Toto could help ?....oh oh.....but he has no hands...he has wheels. "Hahahah !!!
Can't wait to see the books on the shelves in stores & pick them up later this year !!! All the very best & keep them coming !!!!!
