Overview: The Magic of Hobson-Jobson

Product Description

Do you know that the British brought with themselves a legacy when they ruled India? They had a number of words that entered Indian languages, and these words are recorded in the dictionary called Hobson-Jobson. The same theme has been used in The Magic of Hobson-Jobson, a beautiful book that takes one to the adventure land of the island of Durjipore. Instead of taking Hobson-Jobson as a dictionary, this story describes it as a wonderful festival that was celebrated by the islanders. The Magic of Hobson-Jobson is a story of a pair of 13 year old twins, Floyd and Farook Foxwallah, who witness a series of kidnappings before the festival of Hobson-Jobson. Through a description of their personality, the story outlines how these two twins end up being heroes.


The Magic of Hobson-Jobson is an adventure story that is ideal for preteens. It describes a wonderful story in which the two boys go to a mysterious world to solve a series of kidnappings and find help from the magical creatures living there. This includes a flying dog, the legendary forest dwelling Ressuldars, and a waterfall of faces and underwater beings. Soon Floyd realizes that he is the one who has to save all the kidnapped children, but he also gets to know that he is doomed with bad luck.

What you will see?

  1.  Fantastic Narration!! 29 August, 2013 On
    "I absolutely loved it!!!!!

    What a vivid imagination!! You've broken every cliched description of things and bombarded the senses with so many different sensations instead.... it took some time assimilating every bit of info. And I loved the interweaving of indian words into the story.

    So,when is Chutney flying next?"
