Because the queen of Hich-Hich fails to follow the precise instructions given to her by Arif the wise nan, she gives birth to a half-boy. This unusual and memorable tale about an incomplete boy will fascinate young readers and will encourage them to think about just what it means to be "a complete person." That Neem is able to make himself complete by an act of cleverness, negotiation, and compromise teaches children more than the expected, usual lesson of bravery. This enchanting tale of Prince Neem, the king and queen of Hich-Hich, Arif the wise man, fairies and a fire-breathing dragon is marvelously and magically illustrated by Midori Mori and Robert Revels.

About the Author:

Idries Shah spent much of his life collecting Sufi classical narratives and teaching stories from oral and written sources in the Middle East and Central Asia and publishing them in book form. The eleven tales he wrote especially for children are published by Hoopoe as beautifully illustrated books, all of which have been commended by Western educators and psychologists, the Library of Congress, National Public Radio and other media for their unique ability to foster social-emotional development, thinking skills and perception in children and adults alike. Told for centuries, these stories express universal themes and a positive representation of important but often misunderstood cultures, showing how much we have in common and what we can learn from each other.
