A Tale of a Tail is a collection of ten short children’s stories with characters such as Ghasan the gecko, Fatima the desert dancing rat, Ashrif the donkey who just likes wandering around and Waleed the whale who nearly gets himself stranded in shallow waters. There is also Charlie the ugly cockroach who makes friends with other ugly creatures and saves their lives. Plus Karim the goat who ends up very smelly – in a nice kind of way!
Each adventure brings to life the animals and creatures who live in the hot climate of desert regions and shows just how life means so much more when there is a friend there for you.


Linda Benbow:
Born in India to British parents, Linda Benbow came to UK when she was five and was educated in England. She left London in her mid-thirties with her husband and son and spent much of her working life in the Middle East, working in media and as a journalist in Dubai, as well as working in private schools in Oman and UAE. This opened up recreational opportunities for her such as camping amongst sand dunes, sailing on her boat and snorkelling with dolphins. Linda now lives in Wiltshire, England. She is married with one son who, she says, was the inspiration for this, her first book.
