A bold, humorous rendition of "The Three Blind Men and the Elephant", magnificently illustrated by an award-winning artist!
When the villagers hear of a huge and mysterious creature that has come all the way from India, they steal into the dark barn to find out what it is.
"It's like a snake!" says one.
"It's like a tree trunk," says another.
"No, it's like a fan!" argues the third.
Who is right? Which of them knows the creature's true shape?
Mina Javaherbin's charming and witty retelling combined with Eugene Yelchin's refreshingly brilliant illustrations bring this enlightened classic, inspired by Rumi's poem, vividly to life.
