the messenger of Islam.

Born in Mecca in the year 570, Muhammad grew into a sensitive and thoughtful man who believed deeply in the worship of one true god.
In his fortieth year, Muhammad experienced a revelation from the angel Gabriel that he, Muhammad, was the messenger of God. Over the next twenty-three years, he received many such revelations, all of which were written down by scribes at the time of revelation to become the Koran, the sacred scripture of Islam, a religion that is practiced by nearly one-quarter of the world's population and holds as its most sacred tenet that there is no god but God.
Through a clear text and stunning illustrations based upon those of traditional Islamic expression, the award-winning artist Demi here introduces the remarkable life of the Prophet Muhammad for young readers.

I believe that the coverpage is so strange that i can't even describe it. On one side its about prophet Muhammad peace and blessing upon him and then on the otherside the horse has head of indian god. Seriously if the auther think he knew about prophet Muhammad saw he wouldn't choose this picture.

Another one of Demi's richly illustrated stories about the central figures of the major religions. And like many of the books in this series, this one lacks much of the soul that characterizes Demi's other work. This book is like food that you eat because it is good for you, not because your like it.
