This collection of 30 stories about wise judges, clever lawyers, and deceitful tricksters were collected from places as diverse as ancient Greece, Morocco, Germany, China, and Ireland. Some date back to pre-biblical days while others come from the American colonies. From her work as a deputy prosecuting attorney, Sharon Creed draws certain similarities between the cases she used to study and the ancient stories she tells. Rather than give a definition of justice, she allows the book as a whole to speak for itself so that it is left to the reader's heart to respond to each storyeither, "Hey, that's not fair!" or "Fair is fair." These tales share wisdom of fairness and resourcefulness that readers will appreciate.
