Well, actually I mean "Buy Rickshaw Girl at Amazon or that cute little bookstore around the corner"
Here's my review:

This is a fun and engaging story. Your kids will love it.
You might love it, too. It's a subtle and heart warming story of women’s empowerment. Without an angry word, or a whiff of ideology, this story tells what poor families can do by enlisting the gifts of all their members. These women don’t wait for someone to act for them, but take risks. And everyone wins—there is no zero sum game here.
But my imagination is soaring—this is a kid’s story, and you’ll just have to enjoy it on that level!
