The story is simple but detailed. It describes the often hazardous world of the pearl divers, and includes a glossary to help with Arab words and phrases. And it is quite beautifully illustrated by Patricia Al Fakhri, who watercolours perfectly match the transparent prose.
The more those of us in the west can read about the Arab world, and especially those parts of it that do not make headlines or uncomfortable news, the more understanding there will be between our peoples. This is a charming glimpse of that world, and one which Julia Johnson has recorded before it is lost under the glittering new one.
