This is a tale of two princes and their destinies. Prince Hoshyar gains rank and fortune by supervising the construction of huge metallic fishes that perform wondrous tasks and bring riches to the people of his land.

His brother, Prince Tambal, is interested only in a wooden horse that he
obtains from a humble carpenter. But the horse is a magical one. It carries the rider, if he is sincere, to his heart’s desire.

One day Prince Tambal disappears on the magic horse. He is away a long
time and has many exciting adventures before he obtains his heart’s desire and can return home.

This is one of the many traditional stories collected by the author and educator Idries Shah. These tales are not only entertaining, they also stimulate thinking skills and perceptions in children and adults alike and help us all to understand more about ourselves, our choices, motivations and options, and about life.


“The tale of the two brothers and their journeys is illustrated with jewel-toned, delicate paintings featuring the costumes, tools, buildings, and animals of the Moslem East. … The two brothers do not represent good and evil as happens so often in Western tales, but instead merely the choice of two different paths.” School Library Journal

… beautifully illustrated by Julie Freeman, who perfectly captures the magic of this ancient Sufi folk tale.Midwest Book Review

دا د دوو شهزاده ګانو او هغوی قسمتونو کيسه ده. شهزاده هوښيار د اوسپنيزه کبانو، چې اريانوونکي کارونه يې کول او خپلې خاورې ته يې خوشبختۍ راوړلې، پر جوړولو ځانله مقام او پیسې پيدا کړې.

د هغې ورور، شهزاده تنبل، يوازې له لرګين آس سره مينه لرله چې يو خاکساره ترکاڼ ورکړی وو. خو آس جادويي وو. هغه خپل سوار، که ريښتونی وو، د خپل زړه منزل ته رساوه.

وه ورځ شهزاده تنبل له جادويي آس سره ورک شي. هغه د اوږد مهال لپاره ليری وو او څو په زړه پورې کارونه کوي مخکې لدې چې د خپل زړه ارمان ته ورسيږي او کور ته راستون شي.

دا يو له څو ولسي کيسو څخه ده چې افغان ليکوال او روزونکي ادريس شاه راغونډی کړي دي. دا کيسې نه يوازې چې په زړه پورې دي بلکه په ماشومانو او هم غټانو کې فکري درکي مهارتونه هڅوي تر څو موږ ټول خپل ځانونه، خپلې خوښونې، هڅونې او امکانات او ژوند ښه وپيژنو.
