Caliph Chasid leads a dull but comfortable existence--until he and his Grand Vizier learn how to transform themselves into storks. Forgetting a warning contained in a magic inscription, they find themselves doomed to storkdom forever. Yet all is not lost: an owl, claiming to be a beautiful princess, agrees to help them if one of the men will agree to marry her. The Caliph is doubtful: "What makes you so sure she's young and beautiful?" he asks his Vizier. "Talk about a bird in the bush." Hort's retelling is accessible and full of sly humor, while Henstra's ink and watercolor pictures magically convey the silly but apt transformation of the Caliph and the Vizier into storks.
