Most Magnificent Mosque

Back when the Moors ruled southern Spain, three naughty boys -- Muslim Rashid, Jewish Samuel, and Christian Miguel -- are caught pulling pranks on the visitors to the Mosque of Cordoba. As punishment they must work in its gardens, and it's there that they develop a deep sense of the building's beauty and significance. Years later, when the Christian king threatens to demolish the mosque and build a church in its place, the three friends reunite to save the great building. Ann Jungman's thoughtful text and Shelley Fowles's vibrant paintings enliven this story with a powerful lesson about tolerance.
