Because she fails to follow the precise instructions given to her by Arif the Wise Man, the Queen of Hich-Hich gives birth to a half-boy. How this happens and how Prince Neem, the half-boy, becomes whole is a story that has been told and retold in Central Asia and the Middle East for more than a thousand years.

This story is specially presented here for children by the author and educator Idries Shah, who, for more than 30 years, collected traditional stories from oral and written sources throughout the region.

“Shah’s adaptation of this traditional Sufi tale will encourage children to contemplate the meaning of psychological ‘wholeness.’”
