This book is to get the children discovering the world, asking questions and open up their minds to where we come from and why it is that some things are the way they are. Some of the stories are adapted from original folklore or fairy tales, made suitable for this age group and what Wonderland Interactive Storytelling is, while others have been invented often using facts, historical events or cultural references and traditions.So have fun travelling around the world and exploring countries, people, customs and secrets, while at the same time developing SEL and communication skills.


Story Synopsis

The Calif of Iraq is a very good man and sees it as his job to really know what is going on in his country. As a result, each evening he dresses up, together with his vicer, as a common man, and walks through the markets and streets to listen to the people. One day, his brother orders a magician to turn the Calif into a stork so that he could take over and rule the country. Help the Calif and vicer find a way to tunr back into humans. This is a very fun story where everyone has to work together, think outside the box and solve problems. It is about staying calm in a difficult situation and working through the problem, while exploring the customs and traditions of Iraq.
