Ismat's Eid is a crisp adaptation of a delightful Turkish tale. Ismat the shoemaker is a happy, contented sort and on the occasion of Eid, decides to buy his family special gifts. He is persuaded by the shopkeeper to buy a pair of trousers for himself but there is only the last pair on the shelves, and it's too long. Long trousers can always be shortened, can't they? So Ismat takes his gifts home. Eid arrives, and with it comes a shock and a surprise. To be able to laugh and to be willing to adjust : these little life-affirming qualities are highlighted with affection and detail as text and pictures come together seamlessly in this story replete with cultural resonances.
