Haroun, the cat, likes nothing better than to spend his days sleeping in the sunlit courtyards of Damascus. But one thing always ruins his sleep: jasmine! Haroun can’t stand the sweet-scented flowers. So one day, he hatches a plan to fix the problem…with unexpected results! A beautifully illustrated and entertaining story that sheds a welcome light onto Syria’s long and proud cultural heritage in a period of history marred by war.
