A Case of Sense - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review from Arbordale Publishing. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.

While Ming plays outside one summer day, the smell of delicious food fills the air. It is coming from greedy Fu Wang’s house, “What is he up to?” wonders Ming. To his alarm, Fu Wang demands that all the neighbors pay him for the pleasant smells. When the neighbors refuse, the case goes to court. How will the judge rule in this unusual case? Can Fu Wang make money from the neighbors’ sense of smell? A wise judge makes use of another sense to close the case with clever and convincing logic.

My Review:

A book about a preposterous dispute, A Case of Sense tells of a boy named Ming who observes a greedy man try to take advantage of the townspeople.  The man, Fu Wang, tries to extort money out of the people by demanding they pay for the aromas of his dishes.  Once in court, the two sides squabble back and forth.  The judge then comes up with a pretty clever way to show that you can't charge people for using their senses.

The 'For Creative Minds' section in the back of the book gives an explanation on the five senses, has a Sound Matching game, a page on Smell, and a page on Diffusion and how to use it in action.

 A Case of Sense is a Fall 2016 release from Arbordale Publishing.
Win It!

I love the smell of cinnamon/Apple Pie. It reminds me of Christmas and that is the best time of my life (childhood and adult.)

I like the smell of coffee with chocolate. Nom Nom! I always wished that they'd make that sent in lotion for women. I'm not a lover of flower scents.

I like the smell of lavender. My grandmother always had it in her flower beds so when I smell it, it reminds me of her.
