A small boy seeks and eventually finds his own name and is able to discard an old dream for a new and wonderful one. Among the many insights that this story introduces to children is the idea that it takes patience and resolve to achieve one’s goals in life.

This is one of the many hundreds of traditional stories collected by Afghan author Idries Shah from oral and written sources throughout Central Asia and the Middle East.

“… a young boy seeks and eventually finds his own name and is able to discard an old dream for a new and wonderful one. Highly recommended for personal, school and community library picturebook collections, The Boy Without a Name is an entertaining and thoughtful Sufi folktale which is wonderfully recounted by Idries Shah and marvellously illustrated with watercolor paintings by Mona Caron.” —Midwest Book Review
“… one of three recent titles in the beautifully illustrated award-winning series of picture books by Idries Shah. … Among the many insights that this story introduces to children is the idea that it takes patience and resolve to achieve one’s goals in life.” —Bookbird: A Journal of International Children’s Literature
“…a broader message of peace and happiness … this is a satisfying bedtime story that will encourage pleasant dreams to drift into little ears” —Booklist
“The lively and colorful artwork evokes the Middle Eastern setting.” —School Library Journal

یو وړوکی هلک خپل نوم لټوي او په پای کې يې موندي، او یو زوړ خوب له ځانه لري کوي او په ځای یې يو نوی او ښایسته خوب خپلوي. دا کیسه ماشومانو ته ډیر بصیرتونه ورکوي، په خاصه توګه دا چې د صبر او استقامت له لارې سړی په ژوند کي خپلو اهدافو ته رسیدای شي.

دا له هغو سلګونو ولسي کیسو څخه یوه ده چې افغان لیکوال ادریس شاه د افغانستان، مرکزي آسیا او منځني ختیځ له لیکلو سرچینو څخه راټولې کړي دي.

“د سولې او خوښئ پيغام … د خوب وخت آراموونکی کيسه چې ښه خوبونه به وهڅوي”

–Booklist
