I discovered, while visiting al-Balsam Bookstore on its first anniversary, that BQFP titles that were once a difficult 60LE (I think I said a little “ouch” when I bought إلغرفول) are now around half as much.
So this is apparently the time to buy!
Last night, I read the boys—particularly the three-year-old—أفرضي several times, and they were utterly charmed. The story is simple, but the illustrations are so eye-poppingly wonderful that the book is impossible to resist.
