The Muslims [Republished as "Planet Omar"] - In Stock June 2019
By Zanib Mian
Gives kids the confidence to be comfortably Muslim.
Omar is a kid with a huge imagination. He knows a thing or two about getting through life as a nine year old Muslim in a Western society. When Omar’s life is turned upside down, as he moves to a new school and becomes the subject of the class bully's attention, his imagination goes into overactive mode. He attempts to apply the Islamic teachings his family have equipped him with, to his now very challenging life, with entertaining results!
The story unfolds with comic craziness as Omar learns to get comfortable with both his British, and Muslim heritage.
This book is laugh-out-loud funny. It will have every kid giggling with familiarity! It also provides a window into the lives of an average Muslim family for those wishing to learn about other cultures.
