Peg + Cat: The Eid al-Adha Adventure

By Billy Aronson, Jennifer Oxley
Illustrated by Billy Aronson, Jennifer Oxley

What happens when you take from where there's more and give to where there's less? While visiting friends Yasmina and Amir, Peg and Cat learn some surprising things about a holiday tradition.

It's Eid al-Adha, a very special holiday for Yasmina and Amir, who invite their friends Peg and Cat to check it out. After they all rock out with some singing, it’s time to head to the celebration, where there’s so much food waiting! Amir explains that an important part of celebrating Eid al-Adha is dividing the meat into three equal parts, one third to be shared with someone who has less. But with all three bowls of meatballs holding different amounts, they’ve got a BIG PROBLEM! Thanks to a balancing scale, a trip to a soup kitchen, and an unexpected visit to a housebound neighbor, Peg and Cat learn all about the concept of taking from where there’s more and giving to where there’s less. Even Cat discovers how awesome giving can be. Eid Mubarak!

  • Peg and Cat return to the world of picture books as they celebrate the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha with their friends Yasmina and Amir.
  • A celebratory depiction of the holiday also known as the Feast of Sacrifice. Peg and Cat sing songs, exchange gifts, and enjoy festive food with their friends.
  • A beautiful story of sharing and giving that also provides a lesson in more than, less than, and equal parts.
