The adventures of the old woman's cat, the fate of the ungrateful king with the twisted neck, the marvelous horse of Hatim Taim, the craftiness of the frightened fox and the boastful pupil who learned every lesson but one - wonderful, lyrical multi-faceted tales by Sa'di, the thirteenth century Persian story-teller, traveler and Royal Poet. Arthur Scholey has selected and retold seventy-four stories of the wisdom, humour and common-sense of kings, servants, lords, slaves and beggars, pupils and teachers, birds, beasts, insects and dervishes - holy, clever and foolish, as well as the two discontented ones of the title whose complaints were overheard by a wise king. It is said "Each word of Sa'di has seventy-two meanings", from the profound to the ridiculous!
