This series of stories for young adults is to encourage young people to turn to an important literary heritage. This series is recommended for children 13-18 years old although the stories can be read to younger children. The stories here are adapted from the writtings of Rumi. Other books in this series include: Saadi Stories for Young Adults, Attar Stories for Young Adults, and Kalilah and Dimnah Stories for Young Adults.
Rumi, born in Balkh, which was part of the Persian empire, was born on September 20, 1207. His two masterpieces are Divan-i Shams-i Tabrizi and the Mathnawi-yi-manawi (Spiritual Couplets). Rumi's writings may be enjoyed by everyone. We still yearn for the same spiritual balance that Rumi spoke about; we still ask the same questions about the meaning of life and death that Rumi addressed.
