about

When a boy visits another village, he is surprised to find the townspeople terrified of something that — just because they have not seen it before — they mistake for a terrible, dangerous animal. With his own knowledge and by demonstration, the boy helps them overcome their fears.

 

This story is part of an oral tradition from the Middle East and Central Asia that is more than a thousand years old. In an entertaining way, it introduces children to an interesting aspect of human behavior and so enables them to recognize it in their daily life.

 

One of many tales from the body of Sufi literature collected by Idries Shah, the tale is presented here as part of his series of books for young readers.

 

This is the second book of the series illustrated by Rose Mary Santiago, following the award-winning best-seller, The Farmer’s Wife.

 

Cuando un chico visita otro pueblo, se sorprende al ver que la gente está aterrorizada por algo que — como nunca lo han visto antes — creen ser un terrible y peligroso animal. Usando su conocimiento y demostración, el chico los ayuda a sobreponerse al miedo.

 

Esta historia es parte de una tradición oral del Medio Oriente y Asia Central que tiene más de mil años. De forma entretenida, esta historia presenta a los niños un interesante aspecto de la conducta humana, capacitándolos así a reconocerlo en la vida diaria.

 

Es uno entre muchos otros cuentos pertenecientes al cuerpo de literatura Sufi coleccionados por Idries Shah y presentado aquí como parte de una serie de libros para los pequeños lectores.

 

Las ilustraciones son de Rose Mary Santiago. Es su segundo título en esta serie de libros para niños de Idries Shah, después del premiado best-seller La esposa del granjero.
