A camel with an appetite for stories and a clever cat who loves to snooze are lost in the unending desert. But they aren't your ordinary creatures and this isn't the story of just another chance meeting.
When these two wanderers, a djinn in the form of a baby camel and Prophet Muhammad's favourite cat, find each other amidst the lurking perils of the dunes, their dogged fight for survival fosters an unlikely friendship.
As Muezza the cat spins tales around the most enchanting nuggets of Islamic lore, such as the creation of Adam, the spite of Iblis the djinn-turned-angel, the gift of free will, the ninety-nine names of God, the mighty King Suleiman and much, much more, Baby Jaan can't help but be mesmerized. After all, who can turn down a good story?
Charmingly whimsical, this reader's edition of Muezza and Baby Jaan immerses us in an illuminating tale
about a tender bond and, of course, some enthralling stories.
