Question 5: How were the books ‘partially pulped’?

Answer: Bambi was a pup and pup like babies would test the edibility of everything that came their way. Bambi had an insane and insatiable desire to chew everything to pieces. She had ended up chewing the books leaving them ‘partially pulped’.

Question 6: What preventive measures did the family have to take to keep the pup out of harm’s way?

Answer: The family had to watch out to keep Bambi away from electrical sockets and had to ensure that she did not chew upon live wires as this could be disastrous.

Answer: As someone had left the fridge door ajar (half open), Bambi got the opportunity to grab the entire packet of butter.

No, Bambi did not learn a lesson from this bad experience, and repeated the same thing again with a kadhai (wok) full of oil in which kebabs had been fried.

Question 8: What did the author learn from raising Bambi?

Answer: The golden rule that author learnt is that the pets should never be fed at the table.
