MANGOES, MISCHIEF, AND TALES OF FRIENDSHIP is based off of Indian folklore. It's broken up into two parts, but both share a common theme with the same characters. The first part is called A Dollop of Ghee and a Pot of Wisdom and the second one is A Jar of Pickles and a Pinch of Justice. Both stories follow Prince Veera and his friend Suku and include pictures that flow perfectly with the stories.

When his father becomes ill, Prince Veera is allowed to hold court and listen to the citizens complaints. With the help of Suku, Veera manages to outwit the citizens, while teaching a valuable lesson. Soon, Prince Veera and Suku become a witty duo who can best just about anyone in the name of justice. True and equal justice.

I really like that King Bheema is open about letting Prince Veera address the citizens. I also like how the king listens to Prince Veera and accepts when he's made an unfair judgment. Prince Veera is a wise person who takes other people's living situation into account. He doesn't judge people for their background and is open to listening to both sides of the story before thinking things through. While I'm not familiar with Indian folklore, I enjoyed these stories and how the reader can learn a valuable lesson from them.


Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of folklore, Indian culture, friendship, and justice.
