Rana Azzoubi’s new book, Through a Mud Wall, is a gripping and fun story about four children, living in the country of Jordan, who embark on an adventure bigger than they could have ever imagined. Nadia and Walid, typical of their age, delight in being with their friends, keeping secrets from adults, and discovering new places. During a family get-together, on their grandfather’s mountain farm, they join with their two cousins to explore a cave, which the farm-keeper had warned them to stay away from. After mischievously fooling the adults, they manage to get inside the cave, where they stumble upon a fake wall. They are anxious to discover what secret lies beyond this wall, but first they must do some detective work, to find out who might have used the cave long ago. In their excitement, the children imagine that the secret may even be gold, hidden away for ages. Partly based upon the author’s own background, Through a Mud Wall is a charming story appropriate for children aged seven through twelve. Filled with lighthearted humor and interesting factual information, it helps readers of all ages and nationalities learn about life in Jordan.
