From the Back Cover
But what happens, asked the prince, if the donkey stops and just moves its head from side to side, so that you hear the bell and think it is still doing its work? The miller laughed and answered: And where, O Prince, would I find a donkey that has your brains? These twenty-one stories have been adapted from various well known works of classical Arabic literature. They give a flavour of life in times past in the Arab world and reveal the courage, ingenuity and nobility of its people as well as the humour of its writers.
