  • Som barn hørte jeg boken som et hørespill på radio. Historien hadde jeg glemt, men husket at den gjorde inntrykk på meg. Da jeg i voksen alder fant boken på et loppemarked måtte jeg bare kjøpe den, og jeg leste den for vår yngste datter.

Det er en så bra historie at vi leser den høyt igjen.


  • I read this in grade school and dearly loved it. I must have checked it out of the library 6 or 7 times over 2 years.


  • What a lovely little book!I found this book (with the same cover as pictured here,) at the local Goodwill for about a dollar. Such an old book, I thought, must have been very special to someone to have lasted so long in a bookshelf before being donated--and I was right, it is a special book.

  • I read this book some time ago and fell in love with it. A young, smart girl with beautiful eyes wants to learn to read and write. This story tells of her journey with her brother and their faithful companion on the Road to Agra. A well told tale of adventure, luck and determination. I think this book is a must have for every young reader.


  • I read this story when I was a teen, and absolutely loved it. While I have forgotten the details of the story, I recall the profound impact it had on me, and the incredible images of India it instilled.



  • how life was so difficult, how should we love our younger brother, how should we help our parents no matter is the condition.


  • A lovely story of hardships endured and final triumph of a brother's commitment to his sister's well-being. Set in India.


  • Another child's bookclub find, probably the first non-silly book I ever read. A very moving story that has stayed with me all my life.
