About the book:

“Good deeds erase bad deeds” Holy Quran (11:114)

Jamal the giant has been badly behaved for years. The forest creatures and villagers who live nearby are fed up with his antics and are planning something that will rid them of this problem forever.

But Jamal doesn’t like their new idea. Can Jamal make a change for the better just in time? Or is it too late for him to learn the ancient wisdom that good deeds cancel out bad deeds?

An uplifting, sweet story for young hearts about the importance of making amends and improving behaviour through good deeds, which ‘erase’ bad deeds. Through Jamal the giant, children explore the power of positive behaviour, the impact of our individual actions, and caring for our near neighbours.
