"Silly and slapstick!...The illustrations are bright, fun and the big-eyed cartoonlike characters made me smile. This book could lead to a great discussion on cultural differences, acceptable behavior, work ethic and consequences to one’s actions. ”
— CL Murphy, author and illustrator of "THE ADVENTURES OF LOVABLE LOBO"
Chatur The Laundry Man offers a fun reflection about a workaholic's obsession... Kids will receive three fine messages here: the value of hard work,what happens when a push for profit supersedes quality of life, and how different approaches to work and play yield very singular results.
These messages, rarely presented in a picture book for young readers, come through clearly and strongly and are a powerful feature of a well-done, fun,thought-provoking story that kids and their adult readers will thoroughly appreciate --
— D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer - Midwest Book Review
5 STAR - ...This is a humorous tale that will enchant readers as they laugh about Chatur and his business woes.. Nayan Soni's illustrations are comical and perfectly suited to the tenor of this tale. They're bold and brightly colored, and the expressions on Chatur, Gadhu, and Atal's faces are priceless. Chatur the Laundry Man is a grand selection for story time that will also serve quite well as a primer for new readers. It's highly recommended...

"This is an enjoyable story for all ages!. Cute and colorful illustrations take the reader on Chatur's journey of building his laundry business.
This was a cute story, and Gadhu's advice to Chatur about enjoying life helped to teach a subtle lesson.
In the front of the book there is a glossary of Hindi terms, which is inviting to the reader. It gives you a glimpse of the cultural differences in this story over a traditional storybook. I thought the cultural references along with the colorful illustrations are what really made this story unique and charming.
