Publisher's Summary

Unbeknownst to the narrator of Ishmael, a second pupil has responded to his ad in the paper ("Teacher seeks pupil. Must have an earnest desire to save the world"): 12-year-old Julie Gerchak, whose interaction with Ishmael results in a surprising dialogue.

Daniel Quinn is best known as the author of Ishmael, the novel that in 1991 won the Turner Tomorrow Fellowship, established to encourage authors to seek "creative and positive solutions to global problems".

Yes- Where is the Engish Version!!

There was nothing in the information that said it was not in English - maybe it's Arabic?
