MEDIA REVIEWS
"The disputes are engaging and I enjoyed the book's almost anecdotal tone, and that there's always a moral accompanying the joke. [...] The black and white line drawings break up the text so that it's less overwhelming for very young readers - the way it's laid out, it is perfectly suitable for six-year-olds. It's an interesting way of introducing children to the concept of fairness and judging for themselves while assessing two sides of the story, which aren't always obvious, to prove right or wrong." * The School Librarian *
"These clever and funny trickster tales are inspired by Indian folklore and will delight and entertain readers from all cultures." * WRD *
