Select Preferred Format

Haroun’s father Rashid is the greatest storyteller in the sad sad city of Alfibay. He juggles a million stories without a single mistake, and Haroun grows up in a home with a song on his mother’s lips, and a story on his father’s. But whenever he asks where his stories come from, his father would stick his thumb between his lips and say glug glug glug – it comes from a secret invisible tap.

One day, Haroun’s fathers stories all dry up – he opens his mouth, and no stories come out. Can Haroun bring back his fathers tales? Written with Salman Rushdie’s trademark wit and rich prose, this short slice of his classic children’s tale Haroun and the Sea of Stories is a delight for all.
