This book makes a great kid's present! It's educational and fun to read. The author illustrates the richness of Ukrainian culture by dressing up the characters in Ukrainian traditional costumes. As well, "Pan Kotsky" has a moral: not everything is as it seems - to be brave and not to ever be afraid.
