Haroun and the Sea of Stories
The mail coach
The dull lake
An Iff and a Butt
About guppees and chupwalas
The spy's story
Into the twilight strip
The dark ship
Was it the walrus?
Online version: Rushdie, Salman. Haroun and the sea of stories. London : Granta Books in association with Penguin Books, 1991 (OCoLC)608941864
The author of The Satanic Verses returns with his most humorous and accessible novel yet. This is the story of Haroun, a 12-year-old boy whose father Rashid is the greatest storyteller in a city so sad that it has forgotten its name.
When Haroun's father, The Shah of Blah, loses his skill to tell stories, Haroun embarks on a quest to find the magic that will restore his abilities. Along the way he encounters fascinating creatures and a battle between good and evil.

Different parts of the Ocean contained different sorts of stories, and as all the stories that had ever been told and many that were still in the process of being invented could be found here, the Ocean of the Streams of Story was in fact the biggest library in the Universe...
