Summary "Can Prince Veera and his best friend, Suku, outsmart the king's trickiest subjects?"-- Provided by publisher.
In these tales inspired by traditional Indian folktales, Prince Veera and his best friend Suku are given the opportunity to preside over the court of his father, King Bheema. Some of the subjects' complaints are easy to address, but others are much more challenging. How should they handle the case of the merchant who wants to charge people for enjoying the smells of his sweets? Or settle the dispute between a man who sells a well to a neighbor, but not the water inside? Or solve the mystery of the jewels that have turned into pickles? These eight tales show how Veera and Suku outwit the kingdom's greediest, wiliest subjects.
Contents Book one: A dollop of ghee and a pot of wisdom. Prince Veera's first case ; Who stole the Laddus? ; The case of the greedy moneylender ; The unfortunate case -- Book two: A jar of pickles and a pinch of justice. All's well with mango pickles ; Freezing lakes and missing crows ; What's fair? -- Gray elephants and five fools.
