A great collection of stories from all around the world, all of which with a moral or a point. Each story begins with a quote (which were very well picked) and the whole book has beautiful illustrations. Recommend to anyone, Muslim or non-Muslim!

A charming collection of Islamic (not Arabic) folk tales, legends, and wisdom literature, the equal of Aesop's Fables and a wonderful insight into these much-neglected cultures.
