Reviews

"Despite his mischievousness, Kaytek is an intelligent boy with a good heart. His story is quite enjoyable. Recommended." --Kasey Giard, Children's Literature
"When young students are exposed to a diversity of communication styles, even stories outside their own culture, they are more likely to accept differences . . . for youth to appreciate the diversity of human communication is a step towards tolerance and peace." --Craig Duffy, godinternational.org
