“The Blue Wolf” and “The Curse of Sumanat”
These two novels are written for twelve- year- old children yet based on historical research. “The Blue Wolf” brings to life the character of “Muzaffar Al-Din Kukbury” Prince of Erbil, while “The Curse of Sumanat” tells the tale of Sultan Mahmoud Ghaznawi who brought Islamic rule to India. The two novels are written from the perspective of a contemporary 12 year-old boy who sets off on time-traveling adventures.
An epic narrative that documents the history of the city of Port Said from 1956 until the present day. The main character is ‘Al-Bambooti’ who lives on the sea port and spends his time servicing ships, guiding tourists, and selling knick-knacks to passing sailors. Through his eyes, the economic, political and social changes that are impacting the citizens of Port Said are highlighted. The quasi-satirical end of the tale is the prediction of the city’s disappearance, submerged by the sea, as foretold by the latest environmental studies on climate change.
