The story is lotsa fun, but I love the illustrations the best.
Marissa Garcia
The story is didactic, boring, and way too lengthy. The art is borderline sinister. Spend a second REALLY looking at it. Weird, sexy animals with human butts and limbs are never okay. There also appears to be a face in a tree performing fellatio on another tree on page 38.

And what is the deal with Lotsa de Casha's accent? Are we making fun of Italian immigrants with that wildly stereotypical garbage? Itsa crap.
In her fifth book, Madonna touches on a very important lesson.

Lotsa de Casha is a very wealthy man, yet he is very unhappy. He sets off on a journey to lean what would make him happy, since he was unable to purchase it on his own. Throughout the story, he is told how to be happy, but he ignores it. After a series of event, he is left penniless. He is aided by Mr. Forfilla with a ride back to his castle under the condition that he helped him along the way with his deliveries. The journey back hom
Read by Madonna in an audio cd, this children's book tries to show the reader that money does not necessarily buy happiness. Not my favorite of her stories, but it was okay.
Three stars for the story, one extra for the beautiful artwork. This one was (along with Mr. Peabody's apples) the best in the series.
Lovely illustrations aside, Madonna's awful writing manages to sink this hamfisted attempt at a moralized children's story.
My good friend Mr. J. Van Thiel once invited me and one of my best friends to his place for a day of movies, gossips and books. At the end of the day, he showed me this book written by Madonna, and made me read the whole story aloud. I couldn't stop laughing at Madonna's wit! She made Lotsa De Casha so real in its fantasy setting. Who would've thought that a girl who once burned a cross, had a wild and widely-publicized sex life and known for her pointy bustier could come up with very original s ...more

KARMA .. What goes around comes around!!
A tale full of facts and good messages for children.

"if you share what you have and put others before you, you will find happiness"

Nice illustrations suits the story just well!
Got this book as a Christmas present. It was a cute book with a good message. This is the first children's book I had read by Madonna. She did a good job. Who knew she had it in her.
A cute story and, like Madonna's other books for children, a good message. I loved that it was written in a way to "force" you to speak in an Italian accent when reading out loud. Fun.
I absolutely love this children's book. The artwork is gorgeous. A great book for children and their parents!

All about where GREED gets you! Great lesson for children and adults. Loved the illustrations.
The artwork creeped me out a little. Why would a greyhound have human hands?
