“Little Blue Skater Boy” is a Muslim fiction children’s story book inspired by “Little Red Riding Hood” and we can say, it’s Muslim version of it, written by Shoohada Khanom and published by Djarabi Kitabs Publishing.
The story is about a little boy named Isa, who lives in a house opposite to the woods and is called “Little Blue Skater Boy” because he always wears a blue hoodie and travels on his skateboard.
One late afternoon, he is called by his mother and sent to his nanni’s (grandmother’s) house with biryani because she is ill.
“The Little Blue Skater Boy” confronts a female jinn on his way and she begins to talk to him, hiding her identity. She convinces him to collect some flowers for his nanni.
I loved how this book teaches young children different dua’s (supplications) and it’s importance. Above of all, the lesson that THEY SHOULD NEVER TALK TO THE STRANGERS.
Once again, a great accomplishment by Shoohada Khanom for writing such a beneficial book for the children.
I will highly recommend buying this book, especially if you love to buy books which helps in good upbringing of the children.
