Calabash Cat And His Amazing Journey
Verified Purchase. James Rumford was a Peace Corps volunteer living in Chad with his wife when she bought a wonderful cat, cut from a giant gourd and decorated with the wood-burning designs of the Kotoko people. That cat inspired this book, which is illustrated in the charming style of the calabash engravers of Chad. His original tale will keep you thinking long after you have closed the covers of this book -- about our one world, and about seeking knowledge and finding wisdom.

An extra bonus is the bilingual format of the book, with every two-page spread having one page in English and one page in Arabic. The author modeled the Arabic calligraphy after the handwriting of his Chadian friend Brahim Adoum.
Chadian Arabic is spoken by certain tribes in Chad and, in its simplest form, is used as a market language in a country where many languages are spoken. Chadian Arabic is a spoken language and rarely written, so the beautiful calligraphy is an unusual treat. First, the art is beautiful and engaging. The bold lines and beautiful patterns within the animals are unique for children's books and very interesting to look at.
Next, the story is very good. Like many good children's stories, this adventure of a cat can be both interesting and meaningful on the surface, for a young audience, as well as providing a deeper message for us adults most likely reading the story to children.
