"A salutary exercise of intellect and spirit for both kings and commoners." (Ursula Le Guin)
"Contemporary, racy, vigorous, full of zest. It is also very funny. I defy anyone to sit down with it and not finish it at a sitting." (Doris Lessing )
"This book is not merely for entertainment - the guidance and honesty weaved into the tales makes this book shine. It is perfect for both younger and adult readers and is highly recommended by this writer. A must-have for any library!"
(The Chicago Firefly, Dec. 2000)
"Wise and vigorous, sly and funny tales . . . They are contemporary; they are eternal . . . No higher praise is necessary."
