Dear Jamshed, America is not so different from what we thought. I told you I wouldn't see a single cowboy riding across the plain, and I haven't. I have not even seen a plain. Still, there are some silver linings. They are: Trapper and King, the cat and dog who live in the apartment building. They are cuddly and waggy. I am not allowed to play with them, though, becayse they are supposed to catch mice and keep burglars away.
Ironman. He owns a pig and talks to me a lot. But he is a grown-up.
Kids. I can hear them playing outside. Too bad they do not want to play with me.
I wish you were here. Do you wish I was in India? Write back soon. Your friend, Lowjiread more
This is one of my favorite books in recent memory. Lowji is a good-natured, optimistic little boy whose parents move to the USA. He must leave behind his friends, his extended family, his familiar surroundings, and adapt to new everything. He approaches everything as an adventure and makes friends wherever he goes. There are so many laugh-out-loud moments, and the overall tone of the book is so upbeat, that it would be hard not to love Lowji.read more
