About the author:

Straight from a Child's Heart - Vol 2 is Shruti's second book, written at the age of 11 when she was a student in class VI of the Hindu Senior Secondary School in Chennai.

Books and stories are not read just once; she reads and rereads them and savours the words and nuances thoroughly. She started writing stories when she was six years old, first on paper and then on the laptop. She spends at least an hour, everyday, typing stories, unless she is suffering from "the writer's block".

She has excelled, having secured a High Distinction ( being in the top 1% of students in her class) in the IAIS (International Assessment for Indian Schools) and a school topper, and was ranked 41st internationally in the International English Olympiad conducted by SOF(Science Olympiad Foundation).

Her other interests include learning ballet, watching cricket matches with her father, listening to film songs, playing the keyboard and doodling pictures (some for her stories and books). In fact, the cover page of this volume shows her artwork on ice cream sticks - she has a collection of 35-40 of them and each one is done differently.
