Neem the Half-Boy by Idries Shah

Because she fails to follow the precise instructions given to her by Arif the Wise Man, The Queen of Hich-Hich gives birth to a half-boy. That Neem is able to make himself complete by an act of cleverness, negotiation and compromise teaches children more than the expected, usual lesson of bravery.

This enchanting tale of Prince Neem, the King and Queen of Hich-Hich, Arif the Wise Man, fairies and a fire-breathing dragon is marvelously and magically illustrated by Midori Mori and Robert Revels.
