Language: English . Brand New Book. A twelve-year-old boy returns from his school in Cairo to find his village torn by feud and fear. A corrupt official has ordered the peasants to irrigate their fields in five days, instead of the customary ten--a demand that threatens to disrupt the whole life of the village. A schoolmaster. Sheikh Hassouna, urges the villagers to rebel. But it takes many attempts, some disastrous, others comical and touching, before they join forces against their oppressors.
