Description-

  • A joyous short story collection by and about Muslims, edited by New York Times bestselling author Aisha Saeed and Morris finalist S. K. Ali. Once Upon an Eid is a collection of short stories that showcases the most brilliant Muslim voices writing today, all about the most joyful holiday of the year: Eid! Eid: The short, single-syllable word conjures up a variety of feelings and memories for Muslims. Maybe it's waking up to the sound of frying samosas or the comfort of bean pie, maybe it's the pleasure of putting on a new outfit for Eid prayers, or maybe it's the gift giving and holiday parties to come that day. Whatever it may be, for those who cherish this day of celebration, the emotional responses may be summed up in another short and sweet word: joy.
 

Awards-

About the Author-

  • S. K. Ali is the award-winning author of Saints and Misfits, a finalist for the American Library Association's 2018 William C.Morris award, and the winner of the APALA Honor Award and Middle EastBook Honor Award.

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine Narrators Siiri Scott and Neil Shah give voice to the highs and lows of middle-grade feelings in these sweet and joyful stories about Eid celebrations around the world. As the protagonists deal with everything from divorced parents to cultural differences to celebrating as part of a community of refugees, Shah and Scott enhance the listening experience with their authentic pronunciations. G. Willow Wilson's "Seraj Captures the Moon" is a short graphic novel that listeners can access via a pdf so they can follow along with Scott's lively narration (including donkey brays). The only audio misstep is that in the final story, "Eid and Pink Bubble Gum," by Australian author Randa Abdel-Fattah, a family on an annual road trip to visit grandparents outside of Sydney inexplicably have American accents.
