Inspired by the balloons at my grandchild's first birthday party, this story of a boy who bought one balloon too many should interest all children who love balloons. As in The Cat Who Loved Hats, there is a moral for those who wish to find it. But this story of a small boy and his balloons, colourfully illustrated by Keya Rahman and Aolad Hossain, is primarily meant to encourage children to read by appealing to their spirit of adventure. - Niaz Zaman

Like other Bengali children, the writer Runa Khan Marre heard fairy tales from her old nannies and other household storytellers. Now she has compiled these stories in a simplified English translation for other children to read. Many of the tales are common to both Bangladesh and West Bengal. Some of them may be found in Thakur Ma's Jhuli, compiled by D. M. Majumdar. Runa Khan Marr's versions are slightly different, being filtered through the several retellings that these stories have undergone.

In this second collection of short stories, Niaz Zaman brings the versatility of her pen and imagination to look at the world around her and tell the stories of men and women caught up in the business of living. While she often narrates her stories from the perspective of her women characters, she is also able to enter the minds of her male protagonist. What does it feel like when a man bids farewell to a child after divorce? How does a raw provincial react when he is in a cosmopolitan city for the first time?

আচ্ছা, একবার ভাবুন তো, আমরা কেন বলি পানি ভেজা পদার্থ? এই ভেজা শব্দের আসল অর্থ কী? কী বোঝায় ভেজা বললে? এ রকম বোকার মতো প্রশ্ন শুনে অনেকে হয়তো হাসবে। বলবে, পানিতে হাত দিলে ভিজে যায় ব্লেই তো পানিকে আমরা বলি ভেজা। এর মধ্যে আবার রহস্যের কী আছে। সত্য। কিন্তু পানি কি সবকিছু ভেজাতে পারে? একটা মোম্বাতি পানিতে ডোবালে তো সেটা ভিজবে না। তাহলে পানিকে কেন ভেজা বলব?
