This delightful collection of fourteen stories, each accompanied by one or two recipes, highlights stories for children 8 to 12 that feature food from North Africa and the Middle East.

Most are set a long time ago, or as one story puts it "a time when all men had moustaches and all cats had whiskers." A grouchy king has two good-for-nothing sons and a loving daughter. A woman tricks a thief into revealing his guilt. A grandfather tells a fish tale and his granddaughter tells one better.

The accompanying recipes are accessible and explicit, ranging from simple beverages to popular favorites to more ambitious dishes such as bite-size lamb pastries and cream-filled pancakes. Sidebars provide additional information about regional culinary history and ingredients.

Hardcover. Color illustrations by Nahid Kazemi throughout.

Recipes by Sobhi al-Zobaidi and Tamam Qanembou-Zobaidi.
