'Why did you drink the lake water?' asks Afnan sadly. 'I didn't believe the story,' her brother replies.

It's no comfort to Afnan that she lives in a beautiful city. For when her father returns home from pilgrimage, she will have to explain that Sa'ad has turned into a gazelle. If only she had taken better care of him! But when she looks after an injured bird, perhaps Afnan's kindness will receive the reward it deserves.

This enchanting picture book by husband and wife team Abdulla al-Ameen and Leena Jamil was inspired by the bedtime stories they told their children: Hala, Mohammed and Anas.
