Hiding stories

A friend said that Sufis passed on their knowledge in parables, which helped Sufism to endure through times when authorities tried to suppress their religion. Ignorant people thought the parables were children's stories and kept telling them while seekers recognized the wisdom in them and followed the path.

Which stories been left for us to find?


  1. I'll start with my top 3 which are quite obvious.. well actually I'm not sure if these are hidden but in Finnish libraries they are all hidden in children's section :)

    "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

    "Gulliver's Travels" by Jonathan Swift

    "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" by Richard Bach

  2. I agree with Jen-Ska's choices and would add "Black Beauty" by Anna Sewell
