    Billoo comes across as a very funny and intelligent character. He is a happy go lucky young guy whose stories are set in and around Delhi (Capital of India) and are mostly about his interactions and iterations with the local people and flavors of the season. The books are clean fun though sometimes there are issues with race, color, etc. which are a part of the carry over from the literal translations from Hindi. Some of the recurring characters in the books are - On Billoo's side we have - Moti Billoo comes across as a very funny and intelligent character. He is a happy go lucky young guy whose stories are set in and around Delhi (Capital of India) and are mostly about his interactions and iterations with the local people and flavors of the season. The books are clean fun though sometimes there are issues with race, color, etc. which are a part of the carry over from the literal translations from Hindi. Some of the recurring characters in the books are - On Billoo's side we have - Moti (Billoo's pet dog), Jozi (Billoo's childhood friend and love interest), Gabdu, Monu and Bishamber (some of Billoo's friends) and Colonel Three Naught Three (ex-armyman and Jozi's father, who has an immense dislike for Billoo, something very similar to Mr. Lodge from the Archie's) As adversaries we have Bajarangi (local wrestler always at loggerheads with Billoo) and his sidekick Dhakkan. The current book as the cover page denotes is about Billoo and Olympic games, is a representation of the kind of books in the Billoo universe with small short incidents brought together in a book. Like most other books in the Billoo series this one starts of with a confrontation with Bajrangi when he finds Billoo exercising for the Olympics. The story results inevitably in an altercation and a challenge between Billoo and Bajrangi. There is a lot of slapstick in the stories and involve almost all topics from going to the movies to going for a walk, plays, matches, pranks and incidents. Juxtaposed together to form an attractive humorous set which can be enjoyed by people from all ages. Recommended for children and the child at heart from ages 7 years and above. Enjoy....
