"The vibrant illustrations, full of colour and life, offer the reader a glimpse of the everyday life of those who live in India. The simple plots offer lots of opportunities for joining in and for adding musical accompaniments whilst showing us the best qualities of this gentle man... [I] really look forward to seeing where Farmer Falgu's adventures will take him next!"--North Somerset Teacher's Book Award
"Everyone knows what to do when life gives you lemons, but Farmer Falgu has a delightful new alternative...Broad outlines and bold colors join a riot of expressive exclamations as exotic Indian sights, sounds, and smells sizzle, honk, bump, and dunk along the road with an optimistically determined Falgu and his oxen until they finally reach their destination, rumpled wares and all."--Foreword Reviews
"An original, delightfully entertaining, and highly recommended picture book for children ages 5 to 7, 'Farmer Falgu Goes to the Market' will prove to be an enduringly popular addition to family, preschool, elementary school, and community library collections."--Midwest Book Review
"Nair captures the growing cacophony in exuberant digital illustrations colored in bold jewel tones and outlined in rough strokes of brown...Enlarged, color-coded type helps emphasizes the onomatopoeia that fills a buoyant cumulative story that, in addition to being just plain fun, may leave readers curious to learn more about the rural Indian setting."--Publishers Weekly
"...the concise onomatopoeic sounds are in bigger and color-coded type, which provides additional emphasis and is perfect for read-alouds. The bold, thick-outlined illustrations are engaging...a good moral lesson and likely appeal for young kids."--Kirkus Review
"I love the simple story, told in simple declarative sentences, enhanced with onomatopoeia and typeface in different colors and designs. The deeply colored illustrations are bold and vivid, outlined in brown and evoke the warmth and color of India. This sweet story would work for story times and could be a welcome addition to multicultural units for ages 3-5 yrs."--Youth Services Book Review
With an intriguing story and eye popping colors, this will keep kids guessing.--International Examiner, Seattle
