      Written & Illustrated by NADINE KAADAN 

      Haroun, the cat, likes nothing better than to spend his days sleeping in the sunlit courtyards of Damascus. But one thing always ruins his sleep: jasmine! Haroun can’t stand the sweet-scented flowers. So one day, he hatches a plan to fix the problem...with unexpected results! A beautifully illustrated and entertaining story that sheds a welcome light onto Syria’s long and proud cultural heritage in a period of history marred by war.

      ‘A funny, magical tale whose conclusion gently suggests that there is room for us all in this world’ – Guardian Witness 

      'You’ll get caught up in Damascus’ dense colours and patterns, as well as its light-hearted, sweet-smelling humour. A joy!’ – ArabLit

      'Children will be captured by the cheeky portrayal of Haroun, and those too young to read will be mesmerised by his antics on the pages' – Middle East Monitor

      My future cat will be named Haroum

      Beautiful depiction of Damascus, and a very silly kitty cat named Haroum. I read this to my buddy's daughter when they visit, and we sneezed our way through the whole story every time. Instant hit with the kids!
