In a small town somewhere in the Middle East Mulla Nasruddin.

Mulla Nasruddin was famous for being a bit odd. He reacted to the follies of his fellow men and to the challenges of daily life – be it catching a runaway basket or celebrating the birth of a pot – in a manner that people found strange. But most wise men agreed that beneath the apparent foolishness of Mulla Nasruddin was a keen perception that cut straight to the truth.

This collection of twenty-five tales contains all the fun and wisdom that make the stories of Mulla Nasruddin so widely read and well loved.
