The Golden Lamb
Apples From Heaven: Multicultural Folk Tales About Stories and Storytellers
From Iraq, a tale of three friends who are promised a new Spring lamb apiece for a winter's work tending the flock. When Spring comes one of the lambs is born with a golden fleece. Unable to agree on who gets the golden lamb they take their case to Caliph Harun Al-Rashid. His solution isn't at all what they expected but in the long run leads to lives rich in storytelling and friendship.
