The Case of the Marble Monster and other stories
The Case of the Marble Monster and other stories Author:I.G. Edmonds (Original Title: Ooka The Wise)
"If you were a judge, would you:
- punish a man for stealing a smell?
- order a barber to give an ox a shave?
- call in a willow tree as a witness to a crime?
Judge Ooka does all these things. And when Ooka commands, let the thief and the cheat beware!"
I read this book when I was in the 4th grade. One day I remembered it and wanted to read it. Although it was juvenile in nature, I enjoyed reading about Ooka and how wise he was. Worth reading for a youngster for sure.
