This volume consists of ten favorite stories, selected by the author, and reveals a fresh new face as a writer of delightfully whimsical and funny stories.
These irresistible stories abound with unlikely and colorful characters: a vehemently non-vegetarian cow, the household pet, who wolfs down fried fish and gets drunk on local spirits; an irrepressible prankster of a brother who gets himself and every one else into trouble with his mischievous tricks and so on.
Though aimed at young readers, these rib-tickling tales have a heartwarming humor likely to remind everyone of the crazier members of their own families.
