"Miss Sorabji has a humorous and vivid pen; she can see below the surface of human nature, and is able to reveal the characters of native children in India with considerable insight and skill.... The volume contains several excellent illustrations."
—The Publishers' Circular, Volume 82
"Miss Sorabji's charmingly-written little book, in which that remarkable woman tells, in sketches, the story of the child-life of India, and incidentally not a little of the profoundly absorbing story of Indian domestic life at large. The book is full of a wonderful tenderness."
"By way of impartial test we submitted this volume to two lady critics aged twelve, deeply read in the literature of children's books. It was returned with the verdict that it was too like a geography lesson. From this judgment we wholly dissent. It may be said of the stories that they follow the method and manner made popular by Kipling and Mrs. Steel: but the matter has much that is original and a good deal that is altogether delightful, albeit the language is somewhat idealised for such speakers. We should be grateful to Miss Sorabji for this glimpse of Indian child-life."
—The Saturday Review of Politics, Literature, Science and Art, Volume 99
