The Master Rug Beater, by Betty Houbion

In the Iranian town of Samarkand, you might hear whispers of the tale of the master rug beater. Masruq was the best at his trade and always worked to never leave a single speck of dust — until one day when he pushed himself too hard. Join in on this mysterious middle eastern journey and learn a lesson on perfectionism and accepting ourselves for who we are and will become.
