    6. I won't say I don't read children's books. If I chance upon a good children's fiction I dive right into it, simply because I find them richer in imagination. Grow Up Messy is a heart warming story which reminded me parts of my childhood having born and brought up in a 2nd tier city of Bengal. Misry's escapades during afternoon hours truly made me connect with her. How many afternoons I must have spent doing the same! How much patience my mother would have shown to tolerate my disobedience.Right [...]

The stories are set in eastern India and carry a waft of the rural, simple life of an era gone by. Misry is impetuous, curious and often rebellious and one cannot help but fall in love with this adorable child's antics. The parents have been essayed so realistically, one can readily identify with their dismay, tenderness, annoyance and more in response to their little daughter's ventures. The lang [...]

    8. Cute, fun read ideal for reading wth your child.What a cute coming of age story! The adventures of Messy had me and my 10 yr old son rolling on the floor in no time. While Messy mostly behaved like the 5 year old she is, her courage during difficult times, esp when she was lost, was a real lesson for my son too. I loved how Ms. Goswami took me back to my childhood. I especially loved the Bengali connection.Great writing, great editing and a cutesy cover.

    9. How is it possible not to fall in love with a five-year old named Misry, who ends up being called Messy because she is anything but tidy? Her many endearing traits make her adorable, but she has her moments of mischief that get her into trouble often. Befriending children who are older than herself, asking crazy questions and craving the company of children apart from her cousin, Raju, Messy has a mind of her own which makes her do exactly what she wants to do. She is fearless, and does not shri [...]

    11. How many times in your childhood have you been told ‘grow up’, ‘when will you behave like a grown up?’ or how many times you hear yourself saying this to your kid? Grow up Messy is a collection of innocent, day-to-day happenings of a 5-year old, cute bubbly girl, Misry, who has the tendency of messing up every situation she lands up into. So people have nicknamed her Messy instead. Children are innocent. Their point of viewing any situations or reaching any conclusion and reacting to it [...]

    12. I generally don’t read children books but there was something engaging in the title which made me sign up for the blog tour, that’s how impulsive I am (till date :P), but I am glad I picked this book. It will be a roller coaster ride filled with innocence, your childhood.BLURBChildhood is considered to be the best time of one’s life.What if you get a chance to live it once more with a five-year-old?

    13. Paromita Goswami’s book, “Grow up, Messy!”is about a precocious five year old, Misry.Misry is a little moppet who captures your heart with her jest for life and falling into trouble. The book is set not in the world of today’s kids but at a time when owning a television was a huge event; a time when it was safe for a five year old girl to roam around the village by herself. It brought back all the memories of a childhood spent decades ago.However, though the book is meant for kids, there [...]

    14. What I liked most about the book is Messy's innocence. My son is almost her age and hence Messy felt real. The doubts, mischieves and of course the insecurities when a younger sibling arrives are all so nicely described. Poor Messy is asked to grow up by everyone. I liked it when her parents ask her not to grow up in one of the chapters where she dresses up as a bride.Loved it.

    15. I absolutely loved how Misry explored various dimensions to have fun. The author has portrayed her as a fun loving child, and absolutely loved the way the author ended each chapter with a "Grow up/Don't grow up"

    16. It was so so. Nothing great but it earned a star for making me think of my kids and their innocence at some places.
