The stories in this book cover a wide variety of events and situations some of which are humorous. Children in Guyana, particularly those who live away from the cities, will find these stories fascinating. Back in the day when the author was a young boy in Guiana, books were very scarce commodities and anything and everything in print were read with great relish.
