Gypsy Rizka

Lloyd Alexander

Greater Dunitsa is the most wonderful place on earth. At least that's what the town leaders think. If only they didn't have to put up with young Rizka, the free-spirited gypsy girl. Ever since her mother died and her father moved on, she has lived with her cat Pesto in a cart just outside town. Rizka walks around Greater Dunitsa in her ragbag clothes, playing sharp-witted tricks on deserving rogues. The leaders are convinced she is bad for business. The day the chief councilor finds his roast chicken in Pesto's hungry jaws is too much for the frustrated man. He hatches a fail-safe plan to get rid of the sassy gypsy girl and her troublesome pet. But he doesn't plan on Rizka's brains or is it brasiness? Wherever there is trouble, Rizka is there, offering her own hilarious solutions. Award-winning children's author Lloyd Alexander packs this entertaining tale with fun-filled farce and and elegant comedy. Narrator Ron Keith's sunny interpretation celebrates all the good natured high jinks and warm-hearted surprises.
