Reminiscent of Amar Chitra Katha and Chandamama classic folk tales of my childhood, this tale is narrated in contemporary American English making it more accessible. I would have loved to know where the story is originally from - which state of India/ Pakistan or what set of well known folk tales it belongs to. Kamala’s bees make the best honey , but her business is slow and she decides she needs help. So she requests the King for help who allocates a plot of land that she could farm and share the profits with the king. But the plot of land is overgrown and would require ploughing. Also, it is where thieves hide! How does Kamala outsmart the thieves and make the land work for her? Does she manage to farm the land, make profits and protect the money from the thieves? You have to read to find out! The illustrations by Chaya Prabhat are what we have come to expect from her! Saturated colors, great expressions and tons of fun! We especially appreciated the deep shades of brown for the skin colors of the characters.
