play properly. Raj learns notes, then scales, then songs, and finally classical pieces that his father can recognize and be proud of.
However, the more Raj practices and the more skilled he becomes, the less he enjoys playing- until he grows up and stops playing altogether. But when his father becomes ill and requests that Raj play for him, will Raj remember how to play from the heart?
An evocative story from Peter H. Reynolds about how a father and son connect through the language
Much is different in this book. It can be read from right to left, or from left to right, in German or in Arabic. Two ancient stories from the Arab and from the Western worlds meet in the middle: the story of Sharifa, the fearless princess, and that of Walter, Wilhelm Tell's son.
Intrepid Sharifa wants to see the country that hasn't got any women. In a fit of anger King Hamed bin Bathara, the ruler of a neighbouring kingdom, banned all women – except for his mother – from the country. Sharifa disguises herself as prince Sharif and risks her life to pay a visit to the kingdom of men. The king mistrusts the beautiful visitor. In an attempt to find out his guest's secret he sets her three tasks. But brave and clever Sharifa knows how to deal with them.
The legend of Wilhelm Tell, in turn, is well-known. But what happens when the quintessential European story about bravery and freedom is read and interpreted in today's Egypt? The emphasis shifts, and son Walter takes centre stage.
This book is a co-operation between Baobab Books and Theater Schnawwl in Mannheim (Germany), and has been produced as a bi-lingula production in German and Arabic.The two stories were the centre of a theatre co-operation between Schnawwl in Germany and the Egyptian organisation I-act in 2012/13.
