Room 101 and Other Stories by Dr. Ahmad Bassam Saeh


Room 101 and Other Stories by Dr. Ahmad Bassam Saeh

A treasure that must be thrown away. A creature faced with mortal temptation. A discontented worm who longs to be a snake. Two friends whose understanding of hardship differs vastly. A rabbit who learns to appreciate his mother the hard way...This beautifully illustrated collection of twelve thought-provoking stories sets out to encourage children to reflect on their own character and behaviour as they approach the threshold of adulthood. Founded on strong Islamic values, these tales seek to foster the desire for self-improvement and reform. With their valuable life lessons - some happy, some sad - they provide a solid foundation for discussion of many of the key moral issues facing young people today. The stories appear here in their original Arabic form set alongside the English translation. For the benefit of language students, English-Arabic glossaries have been included at the end of the book and the Arabic text has been fully vocalised.
