Ismat's Eid (English)

Author : Fawzia Gilani Williams
Illustrator : Proiti Roy

Ismat the shoemaker decides to buy his family special gifts for Eid. He is persuaded by the shopkeeper to buy a pair of trousers for himself. However, there is only one last pair and it's too long. But long trousers can always be shortened, can't they? Eid arrives, and with it comes a shock and a surprise. This crisp adaptation of a delightful Turkish tale has been affectionately told and illustrated, replete with cultural resonances.

An affirmative read

'It carries the kind of positive perspective that I would like my children to adopt in their own lives. In terms of logistics and lay-out, the little explanations provided made it very easy for the children to follow. We all loved the illustrations .' @themigratorymum

Hilarious story

What I liked about Ismat's family was their ability to laugh together, to work together and to be considerate for each other. Isn’t it what festivals try to remind us every year? This hilarious story is perfectly supported with expressive spreads of illustrations captures and brings out the true spirit of festivals. The brilliant drawings are by none other than the well known name behind the beauty of many interesting books like - What Should I Make, Mathematwist and Putul and the Dolphins. Saffron Tree
