Summary

Did Early Man and Woman make their children take fastest-firemaker-first exams? What happens when a gorilla gatecrashes the examination hall and asks difficult Gorilla Pythagoras questions? Who is a zgnogir and did he pass the most difficult test ever when he was sent to Mumbai? Did Lakshmi Perumal really make the philosopher’s stone while doing her Chemistry practicals? And how did exam day solve the problem of the boy who had a really long name?
Exams have never seemed as full of mischief, and as fun, imaginative and fantastic as in these stories by the very best children’s writers of the country. Jerry Pinto, Shreekumar Varma, Deepa Agarwal, Shabnam Minwalla, Jane D’Suza, Andaleeb Wajid and many others provide a laugh and a chuckle on every page in this book that is sure to chase away the examination blues.
