The Green Musician free pdf If you had just one chance to achieve your dream, what would you do? In a distant kingdom lived a young musician named Barbad. His one dream was to play before the king in the royal court. But Barbad s way was blocked by Sarkash, a jealous rival who would do anything to stop Barbad from meeting the king. But perhaps the palace wasn t the only place to play before the king, for he loved to walk in his garden. What if Barbad was to hide in a tree for just the right moment to play? Find out if Barbad's dream comes true in this magical tale of patience and determination, which proves that all good things really do come to those who wait. Stunning artwork from award-winning illustrator, Claire Ewart, gently brings this whimsical story to life. Adapted from a 1,000 year old Persian story by Mahvash Shahegh, the tale of Barbad the musician is originally found in the legendary "Book of Kings" (Shahnameh), which tells the story of the mystical past of ancient Persia."
