Little Blue Skater Boy : When Isa is asked to take biriyani to his Nanni’s house, someone decides to jump out at him and then tag along. A re-telling of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ with many twists.
Imagine : It’s bedtime! Yunus wants to talk but his sister Saarah goes on a imagining spree. She talks about animals, and dinosaurs and aliens as friends. She talks about sending an Eid gift to orphans and cooking extra meals in Ramadan for the poor, and a whole lot more! A fun, creative story, that also shows a loving sibling relationship.
Who Could I Be? Through the book, children will learn about animals and their distinctive features, and the repetitive use of questioning encourages them to use the clues to keep guessing and wanting to turn the page to find out what animal it is. Most importantly, it sheds light on and promotes the beauty of our Creator’s creations.
Kamillah the Butterfly : Kamillah is a caterpillar who is struggling to understand life’s changes. With a friend by her side and discovering a beautiful surprise at the end of her cycle, she happily accepts the biggest change. A lovely book any child can relate too. It will definitely leave little ones wanting to read it repeatedly.
When asked what motivated her to write these creative children’s stories, Khanom said, “When I had my first child, I started investing in a home library. That’s when I realised there was a lack of books for Muslim children that are fun and engaging. I then had an idea for a story and almost dreamed about how great it would be if there was good, quality picture books for Muslims that looked and read like the mainstream books.”

Born and raised in London, children’s author Shoohada was surrounded by love early on, part of a large family and a friend to many. She left her formal education on hold when she was 16, taking a job in retail, and three years later, she had moved up into the management team. When she was 21, Shoohada gave birth to her first child, and two years after that, she decided to focus on motherhood and family life full-time. She had always enjoyed reading however, and so she began to use some of her free time to write her own stories. Today a mother of six, Shoohada lives a busy life, splitting her days between her writing and her motherly responsibilities. She shares her home in the East End of London with her family, and anytime she has a moment to herself, she reads and writes. Someone who is immensely aware of the world around her, Shoohada maintains an active presence in the community, taking part both in fundraising and charity events. In 2013, Shoohada published her first picture book to great acclaim. Her mission is to inspire love and hope among people through her stories, both those that deal with her Muslim faith and those that do not. She plans on continuing to publish her stories for the foreseeable future.
All of Shoohada Khanom’s books are available on Amazon.com, Amazon.uk, Createspace, and Fofky’s Online Book Cafe.
