Booktalk: It’s time to go to market, so Nasreddine loads up the donkey and sets off with his father. But no matter what Nasreddine tries, it seems that someone always finds something to disapprove of. (Nasreddine is a legendary character popular in stories told throughout the Middle East.)
Snippet: One morning, Nasreddine was sitting on a carpet in the shade of a palm, drinking camel’s milk with cinnamon, when his father Mustafa called him: “Nasreddine, bring the donkey from the stables. We are going to the market.”
“As you wish, Father,” the young boy replied, putting on his hat and Turkish slippers.
