The illustrations provided in this book add on to the book's merit, as they make the stories funnier. The stories featured in this book are part of the staple Mulla Nasrudin fare and are quite popular across the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent. They are humorous and yet full of wisdom, and this is one of the main reasons why they have been shared across various cultures throughout the world. The stories depict Mulla Nasrudin in various ways; he plays the fool in some instances, the clown in others, and yet proves himself as a wise and funny man in the stories.
Mulla Nasrudin was born sometime during the 13th century, and the exact date is not known. He was known for his wit and subtle sense of humor, which cleverly masked his quick wit and wisdom.
