When a boy visits another village, he is surprised to find the townspeople terrified of something that—just because they have not seen it before—they mistake for a terrible, dangerous animal. With his own knowledge and by demonstration, the boy helps them overcome their fears.

This story is part of an oral tradition from the Middle East and Central Asia that is more than a thousand years old. In an entertaining way, it introduces children to an interesting aspect of human behavior and so enables them to recognize it in their daily life.

One of many tales from the body of Sufi literature collected by Idries Shah, the tale is presented here as part of his series of books for young readers.

Chosen by the Library of Congress for their 2002 children’s holiday program.

“A great choice for anyone looking for a fun folktale with a positive message.”School Library Journal
“Beautiful, bold, full-color illustrations and a strong, clear moral lesson dominate the story about a boy who teaches a village not to fear something simply because they haven’t seen it before. It is a classic fable, one in which the boy becomes the ultimate teacher, first not to fear the ‘terribly dangerous animal’ and then what must be a ‘terribly dangerous boy’ for being able to ‘kill’ the ‘animal.’ The story allows children to laugh at how incredibly silly we all can be and think through whether it is wise to act out of fear or whether using your head and a little bit of courage is the right course.”—Elise Bellin, Wisconsin Muslim Journal

کله چې یو هلک بل کلي ته ځي، له دې کبله چې د کلي خلک یو څه په ډار کې ویني – متعجب کیږي – له دې کبله چې هغوی مخکې داسې خطرناک او ډاروونکی حیوان نه وو لیدلی. دغه هلک په خپلې هوښیارتیا او ښودلو له هغوی سره مرسته کوي چې ډار یې له منځه لاړ شي.

دا له سلګونو هغه وګړیزو کیسو څخه یوه ده چې افغان لیکوال ادریس شاه د افغانستان او شاوخوا سیمو له ژبنیزو او لیکلو سرچینو څخه راټولي کړي دي. زیات له زر کاله راپدې خوا دې کیسې ځوانان بوخت کړي او په هغوی کې یې د فرضیاتو د ارزونې او مستقل فکر کولو وړتیا ته وده ورکړې ده.

د کانګريس لايبريري لخوا د هغې ۲۰۰۲ کال د ماشومانو د رخصتئ پروګرام لپاره انتخاب شوی.

“د هر هغه چا لپاره چې له مثبت پيغام سره په زړه پوری فلکوريکه کيسې پسې ګرځي، يو ښه انتخاب دی”

–School Library Journal
