Truly an unusual tale. Looks like a children's book, but the material makes it more for young adults and up.

It is a traditional tale from Bhutan by a Nepalese speaking refugee in NH. Nepali-speaking in that country are called Lhotshampas. They are a minority culture practicing Hinduism in the Buddhist nation of Bhutan. In 1988 Bhutan adopted a policy of One Nation, One People. It wanted a common tradition, dress, religion, and language. The Nepali-speaking minority were called illegal immigrant
