'A Dollop of Ghee and a Pot of Wisdom' is a lovely collection of four stories from India. When the King isn't able to hold court and judge the cases of his people, his son, Prince Veera and his son's friend, Suku, offer to help out by taking his place. From a greedy sweet shop owner to money lenders, Prince Veera listens carefully to each case and offers his wise advice with compassion and honesty.
Beautifully written, the stories are full of colour and humour- and wisdom! Each short story is perfect for guided reading and there are notes and ideas to support using the stories on Chitra's website.
There is a second book of stories about Prince Veera, 'A Jar of Pickle and a Pinch of Justice.', which tells four more tales about the Prince and his friend as they continue to solve cases.
