The farmer’s wife

2016by Idries Shah and Rose Mary Santiago

This is a cumulative tale of a woman’s efforts to retrieve an apple from a hole in the ground. Children will enjoy learning the highly predictable lines by heart. But when a surprise event changes the direction of the tale, their expectations will be jolted in a most amusing way, and they will have learned its valuable lessons about the nature of problem solving and discovery. This is one of the many hundreds of traditional stories collected by Afghan author and educator Idries Shah from oral and written sources throughout Afghanistan and surrounding areas.--publisher
