This was my absolute favorite picture book as a kid! My grandparents lived far away, so we were always taking long road trips to go and visit them. I always wished our road trips were as full of fun pit stops as the journey in this book! Every time we left for a trip I would quote from this book...my dad didn’t find it funny.

Long ago the kingdom of Morocco formed at the edge of the great Sahara, sustained by thirst-quenching fountains and storytellers who brought the people together. There it flourished for many years, but as the kingdom grew, the people forgot the dangers of the desert and the importance of the storytellers. This beautifully illustrated folk tale illuminates and celebrates the power of a story well told.
