When Aisha tries to show her discovery to her family, they are all too busy to look….. until Grandfather sees it and realizes she has found a treasure. Two of the UAE’s best loved literary and artistic talents are here to bring you a delightful event exploring the tradition of pearl diving with fun and entertainment guaranteed.

As a child, Julia Johnson loved dressing up and making up stories! Her life has revolved around storytelling ever since! Her well-researched stories are widely acknowledged in the UAE for their local flavour and accuracy.
