WHAT THE BOOK IS ABOUT:
When Isa is asked to take biriyani to his Nanni’s house, someone decides to jump out at him and then tag along. A re-telling of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ with many twists.
WHY I WROTE IT:
Being a mother and in general, adhkars are important to me and I encourage my children to learn as many as possible. We’re an active family, so we’re always in and out of the house. I feel like I’m constantly reminding my children to say their Duah for entering and leaving the home. I wanted to write a story about the importance of them and thought ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ story line would work perfectly.
