I found this to be witty and engaging and enjoyed trying to solve the problems before the actual end of the story. I even managed this a couple of time. If I have to nitpick I;d point out that as a Persian Beremiz is not an arab. That would be nitpicking though and in no way spoils the story. The ending is bittersweet but happy. Read it to children, read it to test your skills in logic. Whatever reason you choose to read this book you will enjoy it. It truly does deserve a wider audience.
