MELBOURNE, Australia (PRWEB) June 30, 2012
When Mustafa Rostom decided to craft his first book, “Four Arabian Tales: Educating Children About Islam” (published by AuthorHouse, August 2011), he had a clear purpose.
“I felt there was a need to combine an educational and entertaining methodology to help young Muslim readers to better read and understand Islamic principles – with an ethical and moral view of social situations,” he remembers. Now, with a renewed marketing push for the book, Rostom hopes to introduce the seminal work to a wider audience.
The four tales depicted in Rostom’s book look at the special journey and experiences of young Muslims in a variety of environments.
“‘Four Arabian Tales’ offers a unique, fictional narrative that combine both human and non-human characters that embark on enchanting journeys on land, jungle, desert and sea,” describes Rostom.
Readers meet such characters as: Coco the Camel, Haboobs the Elephant, Jehan the Goldfish and Zuzu the monkey. “It is through these characters,” explains Rostom, “posing questions about social and religious issues, as well as their behavior in social encounters that young readers are led to understand their religious identity and individual role in the broader community.”
“Four Arabian Tales” is now available at major book retailers. Rostom’s first adult novel, tentatively titled “Black Scorpion,” will be available late fall, 2012.
