Nasreddine

(2) K-3 Translated by Kathleen Merz. Illustrated by Rébecca Dautremer. In this variant of "The Miller, His Son, and Their Donkey" wise Mustafa uses the story's events to teach his son Nasreddine an important lesson. There's a culture-revealing specificity in the repartee and the goods they're taking to market (dates, wool, chickens), and the art is vibrant with organic-looking architecture and creative perspectives.
