Deepti Gupta's warm, expressive voice lends authenticity to this third volume of lively trickster stories inspired by traditional Indian folktales. As in MANGOES, MISCHIEF, AND TALES OF FRIENDSHIP, these new adventures feature the two young protagonists Prince Veera and his best friend, Suku. This time, while on a visit to the Prince's great-uncle during the summer festival, the pair are challenged to solve mysteries and find clever answers to the tricky puzzles they love. Gupta's enhancement of the narrative comes through in the individual characters' voices; she is especially engaging in her delivery of the boys' youthful enthusiasm and boisterous humor. Essential truths about good versus evil and right versus wrong promote acts of fairness, compassion, and honesty in an entertaining and thought-provoking listen.
