About the book:
It’s Yusif’s second year at the Dar Al Ilm Academy for Boys, and his new role as Year Captain is proving to be a lot harder than he had ever anticipated. As trouble brews in the School Council, and the Headmaster’s ‘mystery plans’ unfold, the pressures of being a leader mount up. Yusif begins to wonder if he is really cut out for the job. But with help from Reda, Warsoma, Daud and the other boys from the House of Ibn Kathir, will he be able to step up to the mark?

It is written for older children (free readers aged 10+) and introduces a unique, niche genre that aspires to reconnect youngsters through a literary contribution to the rich Islamic heritage and values.
