Item Description...
For Jamal and Hmeem, The Game starts out as a fun and daring contest between the two young boys to see who can collect more items belonging to the "enemy" - the French soldiers who are keeping Morocco from gaining its independence. For a Muslim to be seen with anything belonging to the infidels is among the most punishable of sins, but the excitement of The Game becomes more risky when Jamal begins collecting pictures from the Christian missionary Maude Cary, whom he meets in the marketplace. Surely a whole set of the pictures must be worth enough points to win The Game! Then Jamal realizes that each picture tells a story about Jesus, and he's torn between believing the missionary's stories and believing the Muslim way. When a French traitor comes to Jamal for help, will lhe lead Jamal to the Truth?

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The KJC Historical Fiction Review (6th Grade Book Report)  May 21, 2009
This month, I did my book report on Risking the Forbidden Game by Maude Cary, and illustrations by Dave and Neta Jackson. I enjoyed reading this book for the following reasons.

1) This is one of best books (for my age group) I have read on the topic of Christianity and Islamic religious strife.

2) If kids read this book, they will see that if they are doing things they should not be doing that eventually they will get caught.

3) Contrary to what some may think, the followers of Islam in this book are not cold blooded or evil, but warm and friendly.

4) Many fiction books have a similar plot: Two people have some fun with an activity. They see something bad in the process. They get involved with the bad things going on. They end up dealing with the consequences. This book has the same plot but it uses it to talk about the issue of religious strife.

That's all for this installment.

Shipping and delivery was excellent. The book has an excellent story line for children but the difficulty of the words used make it quite difficult.
