RIDING A DONKEY BACKWARDS

Illustrated by Shirin Adl
Published 2018 by Otter-Barry Books

A riotously funny, colourful collection of 21 traditional tales of Mulla Nasruddin – written in collaboration with Khayaal Theatre. Khayaal have worked since the 1990’s to bring to life the poetry, stories, humour and imagination of Muslim cultures. This book, for readers 7 years old and upwards, challenges the stereotype of Islam as a narrow-minded religion which takes itself too seriously. The short stories are full of  questioning, wisdom and heartfelt laughter.
