    This feast of Middle Eastern folklore from an award-winning Iraqi storyteller is paired with vibrant cut-paper art. The twenty fables and folktales in this illustrated storybook have taken a long journey. Many have roots that stretch across Europe, Asia, and Africa, but when award-winning writer and gatherer of tales Rodaan Al Galidi learned them in his homeland of Iraq, it was as Arabic folktales and as part of the Arabic storytelling tradition. When he migrated to the Netherlands, he shaped twenty of those tales into his debut book for children, which was translated to English by Laura Watkinson. Filled with wisdom about love and acceptance, and warnings against folly, these elegantly translated stories—many unknown in the United States—of donkeys and roosters, kings, sheikhs, and paupers are exquisitely illustrated by cut-paper artist Geertje Aalders. Beautifully packaged, The Three Princes of Serendip is a rich and varied introduction to the world of Middle Eastern folklore.

    Hace tiempo, los Viejos eran malos. Ellos se bebieron toda el agua, se comieron todos los piñones y no dejaron nada para las otras criaturas. Sinawav, el coyote, los castigó convirtiéndolos en hoodoos rocosos. Ahora, cuando los niños se portan mal, ¡sus Paiute mayores les recuerdan que también ellos podrían convertirse en columnas de roca! Viviana ha escuchado las historias pero, este año mientras ella y su abuela escalan la meseta para recoger piñones, Viviana tiene algo más importante en su mente: tiros de prueba de baloncesto. Cuando Viviana es irrespetuosa con los árboles y con la tierra, su abuela debe recordarle sobre la leyenda de los hoodoos y de cómo la naturaleza ha hecho posible que su gente pueda vivir.
