Aziz the Storyteller by Vi Hughes
Aziz the Storyteller is an enchanting story of a storyteller who becomes old and weary, ready to retire, and of Aziz, a young boy who loves to listen to the tales in the marketplace. Aziz's father, though, scolds the boy for wasting his time. When the old storyteller offers Aziz his carpet, in which are woven all the stories of the world, Aziz must make a life-changing decision. Ages 4-8.
