By Idries Shah
Illustrated by Rose Mary Santiago
Ages: 3–8

ISBN: 978-1-953292-93-3 (paperback) $11.90
32 pages

This story is about a badly behaved man and how a young boy initiates a plan to change his behavior and, with the help of all the villagers, succeeds. It will bring laughter to young children and, at the same time, teach them valuable lessons about conflict resolution, initiative and co-operation.

Part of a rich body of literature from Afghanistan, Central Asia and the Middle East, this story is one of many collected and retold for children by the Afghan author Idries Shah. It is the first in this series to be set in the West.

(Illustrator Rose Mary Santiago’s) delightfully childlike figures, with their comically exaggerated expressions, are perfectly cast to carry out this story’s message of peaceful conflict resolution.

“A young boy decides to reform an ill-mannered neighbor and finds in himself a newfound skill for resolving conflicts in this warm, inviting story of resolution.” —Children’s Bookwatch
