Once Upon an Eid is a wonderful collection of short stories and, being completely honest, I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. I’m not always a short story person and in themed collections like this there tends to be a lot of redundancy That’s not true of Once Upon an Eid and there was not a single short story I felt was repetitive or poorly written. I enjoyed them all.

Although Once Upon an Eid is a book intended for middle grade readers, it’s a good primer for folks who don’t know much about Islamic culture or are interested in understanding Eid and even Ramadan a little better. While many of the stories include a little conversation about the Prophet Mohammad, the book is not overly religious or off-putting, as can occasionally happen with books focusing on religious holidays. Instead, Once Upon an Eid celebrates the many similarities and differences between varying Eid traditions, and present the holiday in such a way that it’s easy for outsiders to understand and learn. I really liked it. And I learned things!

Each piece is well-written. All the characters stand on their own. There isn’t any interconnectivity in the stories as sometimes happens in themed anthologies, but in this case I liked that. I think the way each story was written allowed a greater cross-section of the overall community and I appreciated the diversity of celebration and understanding shown in the book.

Once Upon an Eid is an easy recommend. It’s cute, down-to-earth, sneakily educational, and well-rounded. Each story is a quick read and enjoyable on its own. As a whole, this collection is a stellar example of an excellent short story collection, and it shares the voices of many different Muslims from many different backgrounds. Loved it. ( )

A collection of short stories that are all connected by Eid. The stories show a huge range of Muslim experiences. Stories feature characters from many places in the world. The book offers cultural and religious representation of Muslim stories. Main characters in the pieces are largely in the middle grade age range. Focus on family, celebrations, and overcoming obstacles. There is a graphic story, poetry entry, and prose short stories. ( )

Narrated by Neil Shah and Siiri Scott. Lively short stories about Muslim children celebrating Eid. The characters are of varied backgrounds and some stories are set in different countries, providing a diverse, non-monolithic perspective of Muslim families and Eid traditions. Great "mirror and window" reading. ( )
  Salsabrarian | Feb 13, 2021 |
The subtitle is accurate: these are all stories of hope and joy, with minimal conflict and happy or uplifting endings. Each story shows a different experience of Eid, and the joy of the holiday shines through each.

This is a strong collection of middle-grade short stories which have multi-generational appeal. There are so many experiences and voices linked to Eid, whether humorous or tender. I think this is a must-read for anyone who celebrates Eid or wants to learn more about it. ( )
