Hari is a dreamer with an unusual talent. He spends the few coins he earns washing cars on cinema trips to watch (and learn from) his beloved Bollywood films. Then one day Hari's gloriously fancy footwork is spotted by Mr Ram, a man on a mission to resolve conflicts near and far. Hari so entrances everyone with his magical dancing that soon he is travelling all over the world and his electric feet bring harmony to all who see him dance. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant or dyslexic readers aged 8+

I read it myself aged 8 aged 8
Hari and His Electric Feet 9781781127551
5 stars
This book was a brilliant book as it was very realistic apart from the part when Hari has a electric pair of feet and when he summons the chickens , dogs, and people . I enjoyed this book because it was all about dancing and really was interesting .  I liked Hari because he was a very honest boy and even when two boys try to trick him with making him in trouble he still never got tricked and told the police . My favourite character was Hari as he was very brave and kind and always helped people when they were in a trouble . I liked how Hari carried on with a very good life and didn't ruin it with being emotional with his mum and dad as they were in a different town . I would like to recommend this book to young children and that want to know about India.

My son aged 6 really enjoyed this book. We read it together as he is just a bit too young to read the whole thing himself. I’m sure it’s a book he will read again as he gets older.  The story is delightful and uplifting and kept him interested until the end. The illustrations throughout the book were great too!

A lovely cheerful story about a boy called Hari. He lives with his aunt and sister in a city in India. Hari has a special gift, his dancing is infectious and when he dances, the most amazing things happen. We really enjoyed this book. My family are originally from India so this book was an amazing way to talk with my son about the things associated with my culture. My son found this book really easy to read by himself, helped in part by the fact that there is a space between each line. He smiled a lot throughout this book because it is a lovely uplifting and heartwarming story.

I loved this book and found it to be a really lovely story. I love to dance so I could really connect with the character of Hari and I really liked that it was set in India as it is a country where I have never been so it was nice to learn a bit about it. I will definitely recommend this book to my friends as I’m sure they will love it too.

This a beautifully written book, full of gorgeous images of India. Hari is a wonderful character, whose magical feet bring people together in a an infectious dance full of joy! I really loved how their were many, many references to everyday life in India, from tea picking to tiffin boxes, and I thought the story would be perfect to use in class to look at everyday life comparisons between countries. The story talks of how dance can bring people together, and can even make the Queen's royal guards dance! I really liked it when the President of the USA was referred to as a woman...nice touch!  It was an endearing story. I also liked the extra pages at the end with a maze, q&a, and recipe. Definitely a good read for a boy or girl aged 8-12.

A fun, engaging story for MG readers set in India that gives a view of a culture and lifestyle perhaps unfamiliar to UK readers. Hari is a wonderfully happy, gentle character and there are definite moral lessons within the story but these are explored with a light touch that never slips into being preachy. I loved the fact that the author refers to the US President as a female, a small detail that would probably be missed by young readers, but it made me smile! The strong work ethic and family values portrayed are admirable and the overwhelming mood of the book is one of irrepressible joy and the importance of doing what you love for quality of life.

A fund good with a likeable main character, Hari, who has amazing dancing feet. My son started off loving this book and then got fed up with it - I think there was too much dancing involved for him ;)

I thought the illustrations were great and that the story was paced nicely with a good range of vocabulary. It was a shame my son didn't quite feel the same!

This book was easy to read and the story was enjoyable, I was a but put off by how unrealistic the story was but I still like it.

This book is special because it is presented in a way to help people with dyslexia read it.
