Ghaddar the Ghoul and other Palestinian Stories

by Sonia Nimr
£4.99   paperback  Frances Lincoln Publishers (2007)

Ghaddar the Ghoul and other Palestinian Stories by Sonia Nimr Why do snakes eat frogs?
What makes a man-eating ghoul turn vegetarian?
And how can a woman make a bored prince smile?
The answers to these and many other questions can be found in this delicious anthology of Palestinian folk tales.
A wry sense of humour pervades the eight stories, with a cast of characterful women, genial tricksters and mischievous animals. Sonia Nimr's upbeat storytelling bubbles with wit and humour, and will delight readers who may never before have come across the rich tradition of Palestinian folk-tales.
Some of the stories featured include: Ghaddar the Ghoul; New Names for Old; and, How Swallow Tricked Snake.
