Reviews

"...This wonderful book, with quality binding, paper, and printing, tells nine stories, each one soon to be another child's favorite...The illustrations are lovely, the writing engaging, and the stories delightful." -- KidsR.US blog
"This one takes us to Thailand and shares a bit of the country's culture through its stories...The illustrations add to it by seeing how gods and goddesses are traditionally portrayed. All of this adds to one's understanding of another culture and, in our world climate lately, I think we all need a bit more of this understanding." -- Crafty Moms Share blog
"...a fun peek into traditional Thai culture for children...These are fun stories, each with a bit of a moral lesson to be learned as well. Which is just as fairy tales should be." -- Castle View Academy blog
"...lush illustrations and larger than life tales...I love that the stories explore universal values such as courage and wisdom, yet they are set against the backdrop of Thai village life, so that children also learn more about Thai culture and history. A lovely book to be treasured." -- All Done Monkey blog
