Full-Text Reviews
Horn Book Guide starred (February, 1991)
As young Ahmed goes about his work delivering tanks of butane gas, guarding his secret, the reader receives a tour of the streets and bazaars of Cairo. At the end of the day Ahmed shyly divulges his secret: he has learned to write his name. The skillful, fluid illustrations capture the city's bustle and activity.

Taken from the Hardcover (library binding).
