Flying Stars

The Magic Flying Carpet

Vol. 1 of Da Wu’s Fantasy Trilogy.

Da Wu’s elder brother got a magic flying carpet. Dawu, his puppy, kitten, bird and butterfly wanted to take a ride together. The carpet couldn’t take so many people so it fell from the air. However, Da Wu came up with a good idea, so that every one could sit on the broken carpet and soar up into the sky again. This story explains to children in a creative way what the last straw to overwhelm camel means.
