Dollop of Ghee, & a Pot of Wisdom, A A companion volume to A Jar of Pickles by the same author, with more stories about the kind and just King Bheema, ruler of an imaginary kingdom in India, who dispenses justice to his subjects when they come to him with their problems. His ten year old son Prince Veera, accompanied by his best friend Suku, is rapidly becoming adept at dispensing wisdom too. Amongst others there are stories of a greedy money lender getting his comeuppance and a sweet maker who wants to charge a poor man for enjoying the smell of his sweets. Even the king humbly admits in one, that he is at fault when Veera accuses him of unjustly imprisoning a man who is despised by all for bringing bad luck. Suitable for newly confident readers, the black and white illustrations add culturally relevant detail
