We read this book to both our girls (12 and 5 years old) and they both LOVE IT!! What a wonderful story!! We always try to pick books that have importance messages for them to read. And this one fits the bill! No to mention that thhe pictures are beautiful! This will be one of our favorite books for years to come.

An ancient folktale beautifully retold and illustrated depicting how peace and love are possible. Reflects values that cross all religious beliefs.

When two brothers come to Solomon with a dispute about land inheritance, the king tells them the story of two other brothers who secretly transfer grain, each from his own stock to add to his brother's storehouse in the night. In the morning, they are puzzled and dismayed to find their own stores undiminished and, the next night, try again. On the third night, each bearing more sacks of grain for the other, they meet and embrace. This spot becomes the site of the holy temple and the very city of Jerusalem. The legend about Jerusalem has been widely told in English collections of Jewish folklore for generations. What makes this telling different is that Smith, who spent time working in Gaza and the West Bank, now casts it as a Palestinian Arab tale. He steps neutrally through the narrative, except that God is not mentioned as blessing the spot where the two brothers meet. No synagogues are present in any of the city scapes. Asterisks appear near proper names, such as Solomon, where Muslim readers might want to add "may peace be upon him." The production is certainly lovely. Stately Arab brothers move through acrylic blues and greens and reds that fill each page with rich color and simply illuminate the action. Smith took liberty to wrap the story of two loving brothers within the frame of two squabblers, which reinforces the theme of sharing. With his best wishes for peace, it is also unfortunate that Smith gives no sources for his claims in the afterward that this story belongs to both Arabs and Jews. Was it first told by an Arab farmer to a traveler? Is it now told by Arabs who live around Jerusalem? Right now, with Waldman's and Freedman's picture books out of print, this is the only illustrated retelling of the tale. It is a beautiful tale of unselfishness, though not presented here as a Jewish one. For ages 4-8. Reviewed by Sharon Elswit

Chris Smith explains in his author's note that he draws the linked stories of "One City, Two Brothers" not from scripture but from an oral folktale told for generations by both Jews and Arabs living in the Holy Land.

The story is one of two parables- two sets of brothers; one who love each other and do everything in their power to share their goods and love each other. The other set are always quarreling and seek Solomon to solve their dilemma. Solomon tells them the story of the two brothers who shared their lives and their goods and the place where they met became a place of peace called Jerusalem. Children will come to understand the moral that loving and assisting each other instead of squabbling with each other is the higher ground and the best road to take. The story of Jerusalem is an additional teaching lesson- both Arabs and Jews want Jerusalem as their own. The history of that area is rich in stories and lore.

'One City, Two Brothers' has been nominated as finalist for the Cybil Awards. "Because The Cybil's is a blogger-run, blogger-inspired awards process, we operate with the expectation of openness and transparency. Any reader can nominate a book through the Cybil blog" Cybil Award Blog

This book receives high marks from me. A beautiful story told in parable form and a beautifully illustrated book with rich strong colors.

Highly Recommended. prisrob 01-02-08

"One City, Two Brothers" ostensibly was written to help build a peaceful perspective among Muslims, and Jews and Christians. A noble and important goal, but it ends up as just a story about sharing and kindness.

Kindness is a worthy virtue, but affixing the extra religious message winds up doing an injustice to all three faiths. The only clear religious ideas are when a brother wonders if it was a miracle that he had extra grain one morning, and the mention that story was told by King Solomon.

The only real difference between the two brothers is that one has a family and the other is still single.

Author Chris Smith tells the story straight-ahead. As it is drawn, he claims, from an old folk tale, I would have enjoyed more cultural flavor brought in. When talking about baking bread, he could have told us which bread and what it smelled like. Instead, the tale comes off more dryly than necessary.

Aurelia Fronty's book design, however, is another matter. It has an ancient iconic tone to it, brilliant acrylic color choices, and excellent correlation with the text. The typesetting is simple, but perfectly chosen (a mix of Mrs Eaves, Trajon and Lithos Regular). Fronty did a superb job, and lifts the book to a better place.

It will not hurt to read "One City, Two Brothers," but it is forgettable.
