''A contemporary reworking of the stories fit for a general audience.... The book has maintained the direct, unadorned style that is a hallmark of folk tales.... A delightful break from the everyday world for an hour or two.'' --Green Man Review
''Identifies the real strength of Nasruddin's stories in context to world literature and story performance, that is, its power to build bridges between cultures. The point of these stories is to speak to the audience in the language and metaphors that are familiar.'' --Storytelling, Self, Society
