Buy The Jackal Who Thought He Was a Peacock, hardback, 24pp, £12.99 (discounts may apply)
- Based on a fable by Rumi
- Illustrated by Firoozeh Golmohammadi
The jackal has never been the same since he saw the peacocks. Now he looks at his grey and brown fur and thinks how boring he looks. He wonders how he can change it to be beautiful and dazzling like the peacocks. He’s always collecting colourful things to stick on his fur but nothing seems to work.
Then he hatches a clever plan that will once and for all turn him into the brightest, most brilliant jackal, just like the peacocks. His jackal friends just look on and shake their heads.
