The character first appeared in the Indian children's magazine Tinkle. Thirteen-year-old Amar Kishen, aka Butterfingers, now features in the eponymous Butterfingers series of novels and short story collections published by Puffin, the children's imprint of Penguin Random House India.

Her first book for adults came out on 31 July 2019. Titled Tongue in Cheek: The Funny Side of Life, the book, which is a humorous take on the experiences of a modern urban woman, has been published by Westland.

In our session we talked about her recent book, ASmash it Butterfingers which is the 7 book in the series.


There's a lot going on in Green Park School. Ozymandias, a black cat, walks into classrooms and there's a buzz about a badminton tournament that is to be played on Friday the thirteenth.

Sponsored by Brijesh K. Singh, an eccentric multimillionaire who loves badminton and hates superstitions, this tournament is good news for sports-crazy Amar Kishen, aka Butterfingers, and his friends.

Badminton practice begins, but can it be smooth sailing with talk of scams, superstitions and suspicions? Butterfingers sure has a lot on his hands!
