This short very humanistic novel about a young boy of Jewish background who befriends a muslim shopkeeper traces the relationship between the two as it develops over time.

Although short, this magical work is engaging and is deceptively deep in the philosphical issues about which it encourages discussion.

A profoundly optimistic work the work encourages us to look at the positives which link multicultural groups together rather than the negatives which might separate them. This is not laboured but does form an intrinsic part of the structure of the novel where the whole nature of our identity as a human being is questioned.

This book is a very worthy title to study and a film of the work has been made recently starring Omar Sharif.
