Abstract:I am an unlucky chick! My left wing was strained this morning and for a while I have to do all my works with my other wing! I can't move a bit because my body hurts a lot and I have many wounds. My head is aching terribly and I feel it is so heavy that it might just roll on my neck and then right onto the ground!
This morning I made a lot of effort to get myself out of Mama Chick's wings. I was rubbing my puffed eye when I saw the sparrow's little ones. They were sitting in a row on a tree branch.
Mama Sparrow had opened her wings and as she was slowly flapping them up and down, she was telling her little ones :… Up, down,… Up, down .., then keep your feet together and just fly.

When I looked down, I felt my head is dizzy and I panicked. But then I remembered the sparrows that had just jumped and so I kept my head up. I straightened up and shouted: Mama Chicken! Come and see what I have learned!
I saw our house; it was beautiful from up there. But as I said in the beginning; I am an unlucky chick! Because just when I begun flying I lost my balance and I twirled and swirled and circled so much that at the end I fell down on my left wing and fainted, then...

Publisher:Monadi-e Tarbiat
Rewritten:Mazinani, Mohammad Kazem
Abstract:This story is adapted from the series of “One Thousands & One Night” ; a collection of West and South Asian stories and folk tales compiled in Arabic during the Islamic Golden Age. It is often known in English as the Arabian Nights, from the first English language edition (1706), which
rendered the title as The Arabian Nights' Entertainment. The tales themselves trace their roots back to ancient and medieval Arabic,
Persian, Indian, Egyptian and Mesopotamian folklore and literature. In particular, many tales were originally folk stories from the Caliphate
era, while others- this story is among them- are most probably drawn from the Pahlavi Persian work of Hazār Afsān” (A Thousands Tales)!
