What other readers are saying about this title:
This book was hilarious!!! I would recommend it to people who liked the Enchanted Forest series (Dealing with Dragons, Searching for Dragons, etc...). "Gypsy Rizka" is about a girl named Rizka who is half gypsy and lives in the town of Greater Dunitsa. She spends her days playing comical tricks on the most deserving people, using her exceptional gift of persuasion. The town is more or less a peaceful place until Rizka's feline companion, Pesto, snatches a roast chicken right from under the chief councilor's nose. This eventually leads to the Great Chicken Trial, the first real trial Greater Dunitsa has ever seen, even though the accused criminal for theft is a cat. This is a must-read and real page-turner!!!

This book is witty just like all of Lloyd Alexander's books. And the title... jeeze, I could say it over and over and over. It's so much fun. Gypsy Rizka. Gypsy Rizka. Or try saying it with an accent. Scottish. English. Norwegian. *throws confetti* It's like a PAR-TAY! ... almost.
