Review:
Every culture has trickster tales. The tricksters have all been males ... until now. Although Rizka appropriates from them, allusions that adults will enjoy, she remains a consummate original. A girl fending alone in Greater Dunitsa, she fends for herself and friends - including feline - magnificently. A touching, laugh-aloud treasure.
