“All the pieces are well-written… At no stage do any of them talk down to their target audience of not-so-young children. The tone is conversational and thought-provoking, encouraging readers to respond to issues that beleaguer the earth, so that they can make responsible decisions and choices to create a more harmonious tomorrow. The questions included in the ‘Afterword’ further the desire to discuss and probe.” – Indian Review of Books, 1999
