Wiil Waal: A Somali Folktale

$ 12.95

The heart? The leg? The ribs? What part of the sheep is the answer to the Sultan's riddle? When wise Somali leader Wiil Waal asks the men in his province to bring him the part of a sheep that best symbolizes what can divide men or unite them as one, most present him with prime cuts of meat. But one very poor man's daughter has a different idea. In this clever folktale, a father reluctantly follows his daughter's advice and has astonishing results. In English and Somali.
