The King, The Prince and The Naughty SheepÂ is the story of Dawood, the king of Jerusalem, and his son Sulayman, and how they help a farmer whose garden is ruined by some naughty sheep. Both Dawood and Sulayman are prophets who, by the love of Allah, are given many special gifts. The townspeople all come to King Dawood to share their woes, and he tries to help every one of them while Sulayman sits, listens, and learns. When a herd of sheep breaks into a farmerâ€™s garden and eats his whole crop, Sulayman comes up with the best solution for both the farmer and the shepherd who lost his sheep. The retelling of this familiar narrative about wisdom and understanding is accompanied by wonderful, rich-in-texture illustrations.
