A folktale heard in synagogues, mosques and churches across Near East and beyond, the story of how the city of Jerusalem came to be has been passed along for hundreds of years. in this gorgeously illustrated book, storyteller Chris Smith shows how two brothers find peace by seeing themselves in each other. Chris Smith is a storyteller who has also worked with UNICEF and Oxfam on the West Bank and in Gaza. The power of traditional stories is a source of inspiration for Chris, and he wrote this book to combine his love of story with the wish for the people of Israel and Palestine to find peace.
