From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4 In this retelling of an Indian folktale not readily available, six princes leave home to go hunting. Disregarding their father's warning, they head north where the wicked wizard Punchkin lives. Years pass; they do not return. Chandra, the youngest son, sets out to find them. Not only does he save them, but he also marries the princess Laili. This story of a youngest son and a good deed rewarded swings along in clear if unremarkable prose. Filled with action, the pictures have an exuberant quality. Set off by pale gold borders, the double-page spreads add considerable interest to the tale. Patterns abound in the authentic costumes, the decorative tiles on the towers, and in the lush scenes of courtyard and jungle. Not a must purchase, but a volume that will certainly please. Ellen D. Warwick, Robbins Junior Library, Arlington, Mass.
