Sorry I meant "Haroun and the Sea of Stories"?

Yes, i was referring to Haroun and the Sea of Stories

Haroun and the Sea of Stories is a novel that functions on two levels. On the base level, it is an adventure novel written for young adults. In interviews, Rushdie explained that he wrote the novel with his own children in mind. He developed many of the stories by telling them extemporaneously to his children during bath time. The novel’s audience, therefore, is children. On a second level, the book is a commentary on literature and literary culture written for adults. This is the cornerstone of storytelling. Despite Rushdie's notoriety (Satanic Verses), he has the ability to capture the imagination. THis is an old but difficult practice of storytelling.

Haroun and the Sea of Stories can be classified as following the narrative of the heroic tale. In such tales, first developed in Classical Greek literature, the hero of the story goes on a quest to find his home and to restore order to the world. While on the journey, the hero faces numerous challenges that threaten to doom him and his journey. The story climaxes in an epic battle between good and evil. This overarching narrative frames the novel.
