The Magic Garden

Rewritten by: Eyad Mdah | illustration: Bana Haddad

In this retelling of a Kazakhstan folktale, two neighbors, Hassan and Asan, turn to the wise man of their village for advice when they fight over who should keep some gold coins found in their shared garden. One of the wise man’s students suggests buying seeds with the gold and sets off to the big city. Much to his embarrassment and frustration, he ends up losing the gold. What will the two neighbors plant in their garden? This is a story about the treasures that the land can offer us if we take care of it.
