The short stories in here, about the Devil's different adventures, reminded me a lot of J.K. Rowling's "The Tales of Beedle the Bard". An interesting read for sure (referring to Babbitt's book) but not one I would fully recommend.

Although I enjoyed these stories immensely, I have decided not to use it as a read-aloud source for K-3 children because some teachers and parents would consider the devil and the frequent use of the word for his realm to be inappropriate for young children. I personally found the portrayal of the devil as an inept manager whose schemes always seem to backfire, to be quite humorous and enjoyable.
