Unlike the depiction of Jesus Christ, a figure portrayed frequently in children's literature, this is the first time the Prophet Muhammad has been depicted in a children's book. Respecting the Islamic tradition of never portraying the prophet with a body and face, Demi shares the story of Muhammad in a manner that is both informative and respectful.
