How to Shit Around the World
"I rarely write letters, but I just had to send you a note to thank you for your How to Shit Around The World book. I still smile at the stories and learned a lot. I’ve had my share of dysentery, cholera, campylobacter, etc. and it was nice to get down and dirty with the details in your book..... Actually, I am planning on re-reading it again in a few months to give the brain cells another chance to absorb the information."

"The author's chief strength lies in her observation of Nepali culture -- she is careful to avoid a patronising 'them and us' perspective. Couple her sensitive approach with a dramatically unfolding plot and breezy, easy style, and readers clamouring for more since the release of her first Nepal book, are bound to be satisfied."

This book, not like many others, it starts by plunging you into an adventure, where you are instantly gripped. I really loved this book and read it in an afternoon. It is not the children being kidnapped, but the adults. The children set off on a long fun, challenging adventure encountering lots of different animals with beautiful descriptions and illustrations. You feel as if you could walk up to them and greet them with their full name. The different personalities of the children really bring the story alive. There are two boys, the younger one thinks mainly of food and the older one tries to be clever but fails desperately over time because the girl out-smarts his thinking with her knowledge of Nepali culture. I think everyone would enjoy this book, even if you don’t have a particular interest in different animals. By the end, you will have a knowledge of more than just foxes and badgers.
