Just wanted to give a head's up: From the beginning displayed on the first page "Maxa's Children" is basically another title for a book called Mazli (or Maezli) which is already in public domain and can be downloaded for free on Gutenberg.org (or an audio version at librivox.org). Having read the book, I'd say this title makes more sense but this edition came out later so it's not downloadable yet.
