|By Dr. Mamoun Sakkal|
From 1943 to 1945, Lutfi Sakkal published a series of children's small books on a bi-weely basis. In all, 40 issues were published with some in more than one edition. This was a pioneering effort to provide children in Aleppo, Syria, and other parts of the Arab Middle East with reading material suitable for their needs and abilities, and thus I intend to provide more information about this project in this page.
Issue number 29 was titled "The Happy Prince." Three Unusual Stories: The Happy Prince, The Master Cat, and The Selfish Giant
