    I've always been interested in the stories of Bahlool. It could be that I find some common ground in the way he questions things, or that he uses his wit to outsmart everyone. That's exactly what you get with this book. These are amazing stories of the benefits of thinking outside the box, and it's great for children (and even adults). Specifically on the actual book, it is done really well. The artwork is not too heavy, so it's easy to follow along, and the writing is clear.

I believe this is a translation, which usually raises some eyebrows because translations can sound very unrealistic. That was not the case with this book, and instead was a very easy-to-follow read. The stories are followed by a Quranic ayaat, a saying by the prophet, and a reflection page, all of which are relevant to the story and its moral. This is a great book for any age, and is overall a fun read. It's also very fast, but will definitely make you wanting more. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone.

    http://adifferentworld-debarati.blogs... What a delightful read. I want to gift it to my younger siblings... great philosophies, yet so simply told and presented through the pictures and comic book style. The Wise Fool of Baghdad, indeed, can teach us all a few right lessons :) http://adifferentworld-debarati.blogs... What a delightful read.

    Bought this book at Comic Con 2014 at Bangalore. Nice and simple stories with beautiful illustrations. Simple and easy to read, these stories artistically try to make the reader value life's essence.

    I thought this book was incredible presentation of a wonderful idea. The idea is lovely, and the art amongst the most beautiful I've seen in a graphic novel in while.
