Invites young readers to join the intergalactic escapades of a ten-and-a-half-year-old boy and his robot pal from outer space.
Launching his debut work of fiction, first time author Brijesh Luthra, a Zurich based professional is stepping into the fascinating world of children’s literature with a science fiction/humour book series describing the adventures of a ten-and-a-half-year-old boy, who likes to go by the name Ziptux and his friend Dibbly, the most advanced robot in the universe. In the country, for a whirlwind trip to launch the book, Brijesh was in Pune on December 17, 2018, for a formal book launch.
The book launch is envisaged as a crisp evening dedicated to adventure, creativity, unique friendships and a quest to re-establish the position of books as a child’s best friend. At the launch, Brijesh interacted with an audience of children from school book & science clubs, as well parents who are all Ziptuxs at heart: keen on space travel, robots, fantasy & a desire to undertake spectacular adventures with their friends. The author also announced an exciting national fiction writing competition for children, whose winning entries will be published as a book.
Says the author, “We are all born storytellers. As most of us grow up, our creative sides get suppressed by the everyday routine & demands of life. But there are occasional sparks, which can be nurtured to revive that creative self. The spark for this series was a seemingly simple parental duty from a few years ago – giving my very young son a shower. Both of us dreaded that activity so much that we spent countless hours discussing ideas for a five-second shower machine that I can give make as his birthday gift. While that shower machine never materialized, but these stories did. And this is my gift to children all over the world.”
In this book “The Great Moto Matic House”, Ziptux wants to make machines to do tasks he doesn’t like (undoubtedly a fantasy of every child). And Dibbly knows just where to get the parts from – the best DIY store in the universe, which happens to be only a few trillion light years away. But Earth’s stupidest inventor gets in the way and does something that can destroy the universe. Ziptux has to find a way to stop him and only in one night.
The launch witnessed a dramatic reading by a child prodigy. The author signed the books for the children, along with that he invited the audience to sign a pledge making books every child’s best friend, just like Ziptux is Dibbly’s. Because books take you on an unbelievable adventure that the mind visualizes with ease.
