Some very naughty sheep get into a farmer's garden and have a very good time filling their bellies. Wise King Dawud and his son Sulaiman(a) set about settling the differences of the farmers. This funny and beautifully illustrated book tells the story of Prophets Dawud and Sulaiman in a most creative way. Reading Noura Durkee's books is as entertaining as watching a movie!
The King, The Prince and The Naughty Sheep is the story of Dawood, the king of Jerusalem, and his son Sulayman. Both are prophets who, by the love of Allah, are given many special gifts. The people all come to King Dawood to share their woes, and he tries to help every one of them while Sulayman sits, listens and learns. When a herd of sheep breaks into a farmer’s garden and eats his whole crop, Sulayman comes up with the best solution for both the farmer and the shepherd. The retelling of this familiar tale of wisdom and understanding is accompanied by wonderful, richly textured illustrations.
