This book is attractively illustrated by the master cartoonist, Saeid Razaghi, and contains two detective stories: "Nasreddin and the Shoe Thief" & "The Thief Who Became a Donkey". These fantastic Nasreddin stories with unforgettable morals are written by the great author, Ahmad Arablou.
In the first story, when the Thorn Picker's new shoes are stolen and he has to work barefoot, Nasreddin plays an amazingly witty trick to catch the thief. In the second story, two vicious and cunning thieves, Wicky and Wacky, try to steal Nasreddin's beautiful donkey, but once again, Nasreddin outwits the thieves and gives them a good lesson. These Nasreddin stories are perfect examples of both fantasy and prophecy, suitable for a wide range of readers, 5 to 15 years old.
Nasreddin is a popular wise man and satirical Sufi, known for his funny anecdotes. He appears in thousands of witty stories. A Nasreddin story usually has a subtle humour and a pedagogic nature. Many nations and ethnic groups in several countries claim that Nasreddin is their own. He is such an internationally influential character that UNESCO declared the year 1996–1997 as International Nasreddin Year. He probably lived in 13th century in Konya, when and where Rumi lived.
The alleged tomb of Nasreddin is in Akşehir in Turkey where the "International Nasreddin Hodja Festival" is celebrated between 5 and 10 July every year.
The fictional character of Nasreddin is far more important than historical facts about his life. For centuries different nations have saved their wisdom and moral achievements, as well as their funniest jokes, into the corpus of Nasreddin literature. He is a vessel to transfer valuable and amusing cultural elements into next generations.
