Summary:"The folktales collected here - from Teuan, Al-Huceima, Marrakesh, Taza, Fes, and Tahanout - provide a glimpse into Morocco's rich past and cultural heritage." "Drawing on stories he heard as a boy from female relatives, Jilali El Koudia presents a cross section of utterly bewitching narratives. Filled with ghouls and fools, kind magic and wicked, eternal bonds and earthly wishes, these are mesmerizing stories to be savored, studied, or simply treasured. Varied genres include anecdotes, legends, and animal fables. Many of the included tales bear some strong resemblance to European counterparts, for example "Aamar and His Sister" (Hansel and Gretel) and "Nunja and the White Dove" (Cinderella). All capture the heart of Morocco and the soul of its people."--Jacket.
