In 39 very short chapters, Ken Schoolland explains many of the topics covered in macro economic textbooks, but in an interesting way inspired by The Little Prince and Gulliver's Travels. This book makes economics fun. The commentary edition gives parents or teachers ideas for discussion other references. Amazon doesn't seem to keep the book in stock. It has been translated into 41 languages, won numerous awards and was praised by the late Milton Friedman. [...] find out about the upcoming hardcover English edition with color illustrations. Ken Schoolland is an award winning economics professor at Hawaii Pacific University. He has written an economics book unlike any other!

Amazing, clear and concise illustration of Austrian Economics(Catallaxy) through the medium of kid-age fables. These principles and scruples I'm sure will be self-evident in their timelessness. Applicable at all levels and all ages, young, old, novice and familiar.

Bought as a gift. It's a bit cheesy, and I bought it for someone who was probably a bit too old for it. Probably appropriate age is maybe teenagers who haven't yet studied economics much.
