Another story that depicts children very well; I enjoyed this look into family life and the exasperation of alien parents. This is a great story to round out the other Kintaran offerings, but I find it a bit too short to effectively grapple with the dense world-building. A little bit more infodump can be a good thing.
Nevertheless, charming and family-friendly.

I couldn't get through this on my first attempt, since I did not carefully memorise the conlang vocabulary provided in the front matter, which caused me to stumble over made-up words quite frequently.
I've read and rather enjoyed "Uniqueness Counts", featuring some of the same characters, and will give this one another try some time.

Imagine a frisky kitten. Now imagine that kitten, like a centaur, only a cat-centaur, with arms, hands with opposable thumbs, and Super-Intelligent. Imagine this kitten on a space-ship, bored, and annoyed with a cousin who caused her to break a leg. With time on her paws, she figures out exactly how to get even. This story is really humorous and fun. The world-building inherent in the tale (tail) isn't obtrusive, but one gets a feel for the universe of Kintaurans. Go for it.
