From the publisher:
“Variety is the spice of life” is a popular saying. Mix it with wit, humor, entertainment and peals of laughter and what do you have? A salad dish of sheer joy. Next to fantasy and spooky, this variety would enrich and encourage a child’s reading table, outwitting a bizarre arena of alluring visuals. Children’s Stories of Wit and Humor: Stories from Sri Lanka is a peek-a-boo into a wealth of such literature found in cultures in this part of the world such as Sri Lanka. The beloved Grand-Old-Man (Mahadenamutta) had a troop of musketeers, The Big Five, who trailed behind their master wherever he went. They adored their master and did nothing but follow the master’s instructions to the point of absurdity. The stories are full of their humorous adventures.
What would you do if you know people were going to follow your instructions to the point of absurdity?
