“These retellings are unembellished, but their humor and intention are clear. Every school and public library collection should include some Turkish folktales, and this title is a decent way to fill a gap.”
School Library Journal

“… Each yarn is a puzzle to ponder, laugh with and wonder over…. Each story is succinct and funny…. Zaman’s loose, cartoon drawings and clear colours suit the light touch of Hoja’s kind of wisdom….”
The Toronto Star
Nearly Nonsense… is an entertaining collection of Hoja tales from Turkey…. Singh, who was born in India, does us a favour by introducing this character to Canadian audiences. The illustrations by Toronto artist Farida Zaman add considerably to the text with their humour, their colour and their whimsical rendering.”
The Winnipeg Free Press
