Through interesting events, each story carries a message. For example, we wonder why a bear cub crashes into a party or why a little boy is disillusioned after his wish is granted. We find that grandmas are of great help and that differently-abled children are very intelligent. We appreciate that a young flute player, though poor, has dreams too. Also, if you love stray dogs they return that love while presence of mind can be helpful in overcoming a magician’s trick or the efforts of burglars in rail journeys. We also discover that ghosts of good children can be good, too. And a girl learns the hard way not to be naughty. We come across naughty kids who can be made to obey without hard punishment. And how a young boy manages to overcome his fear of heights.
