This is the story of two brothers: one skilled in the practical arts and the other, Prince Tambal, considered by most people to be only a dreamer. Their father, the king, announces a competition to produce "interesting and useful devices."

Produktbeschreibung
This is the story of two brothers: one skilled in the practical arts and the other, Prince Tambal, considered by most people to be only a dreamer. Their father, the king, announces a competition to produce "interesting and useful devices." The entry produced by a woodcarver appears to be only a simple wooden horse of little value, but when Tambal looks more closely, he discovers that it's able to magically travel to whatever place is in its rider's mind. With the help of this magic horse, Tambal comes to learn a great many things and, eventually, to know his heart's desire. Julie Freeman's beautiful illustrations capture the magic of this tale, with the images and text inset in rich borders of oriental patterns. The Magic Horse is one of an illustrated series of Sufi teaching stories from the Middle East and Central Asia that were collected and adapted for children by Idries Shah, and that have captivated hearts and minds for more than a thousand years. The stories are designed to help children learn to examine their assumptions and to think for themselves. In the Sufi tradition, there is a continuum between the children's story, the entertainment or folklore story and the instructional or instrumental story. A story can help children deal with difficult situations and give them something to hold on to, but it can also stimulate a deeper understanding in adults. Through the instrumental function of this rich body of material, readers of all ages can learn to develop the capacity to be more flexible and to understand many more things about themselves and about life.
Autorenporträt
Idries Shah a passé une grande partie de sa vie à rassembler des récits classiques soufis et des récits d'enseignement à partir de sources orales et écrites au Moyen-Orient et en Asie centrale et à les publier sous forme de livre. Les 11 contes qu'il a adaptés spécialement pour les enfants sont publiés par Hoopoe Books sous forme d'histoires magnifiquement illustrées, qui ont été louées par des éducateurs et des psychologues occidentaux ainsi que par la Bibliothèque du Congrès des États-Unis, National Public Radio et d'autres médias pour leur capacité unique à favoriser développement socio-émotionnel, capacités de réflexion et perception chez les enfants et les adultes. Racontées pendant des siècles, ces histoires expriment des thèmes universels et offrent une représentation positive de cultures importantes mais souvent mal comprises, montrant combien nous avons en commun et ce que nous pouvons apprendre les uns des autres. Ils reconnaissent l'individualité et l'unicité d'un enfant et encouragent un sentiment de confiance, de responsabilité et d'objectif.
