Their outspoken and outraged pet Fish is astounded and concerned, but the cat will not be deterred.

3 Impossible Questions
A collection of stories centering around the popular character Mullah Nasreddin, who is a well-loved fixture in the folklore and comic stories of a large number of Islamic cultures. In consultation with the Islamic Center of Olympia, we have collected and adapted the stories of this teacher who is sometimes a fool and sometimes a hero. The stories about the mullah (which means teacher) have their origins from as far back as the 13th century where he may or may not have been a real person in Turkey. In many countries and for hundreds of years these tales have been passed down from parents to children and now, we are pleased to share the humor and wisdom of Mullah Nasreddin and his stories with you! We celebrate our Muslim friends and neighbors with our retelling of these stories.
