Rumi's Fables

Rumi's Fables

"Rumi’s Fables is a collection of Rumi’s forty-three most magical and charming short stories that will entertain and educate the whole family...

In this book, Rumi’s Fables, over 25,000 lines from the Masnavi, Rumi’s original Persian books, have been translated from Farsi into English. Although Masnavi is a book of devotional poetry, there are many whimsical stories thriving inside the poems. In this collection of short stories the author has hand-picked the most fascinating fables to entertain and challenge younger readers. Rumi’s Fables comes alive with colorful characters—the sage king, the clever clown, and the bewitched prince—and many talking animals—the wise lion, the cunning fox, and the arrogant mouse. Each tale can be read as a simple bedtime story or as a profound and thought-provoking group discussion. At the end of each story there is a “contemplation box” to make the experience more interactive. There is also a summary of the moral of each story. These stories are reminiscent of the style of Aesop’s fables. Readers, young or old, will find themselves in a land of mystery and myth that can transcend an ordinary or even a difficult life. These fables, with their deep and soulful content, communicate a personalized message to the reader."
