The lesson is greed and selfishness will not stand without a punishment. I will choose “The Magic Prison” and the “The Story of Baba Abdalla.”
In “The Magic Prison,” Prince Harweda was greedy, selfish, and didn’t care much for anyone except for himself. Then, his fairy godmother brings to a house that she made. He saw many sweet treats, mirrors and windows both the same width. Prince Harweda started looking at himself in the mirrors and the mirrors started growing wider and windows started growing narrower until there was no light. Prince Harweda was trapped in the magic prison along with a little bird. So he started taking care of the little bird by giving it food, water, and freedom. By then Prince Harweda is caring for others and selfless.
In “The Story of Baba Abdalla,” Baba Abdalla was a great and powerful king who had money. One day, Baba Abdalla met a merchant who asked for eighty camels, they each get forty camels. Baba Abdalla wanted more, so he started getting more camels, but still wanted more. So the merchant told Baba Abdalla a vase with special liquid. If you dab the liquid in your left eye, you can see all the treasure in the world, but if you dab some in the right eye, you will become blind. Baba Abdalla did not heed the merchant’s warning, so Baba Abdalla dabbed both eyes with the special liquid, at first he could see ever treasure in the world, then he dabbed some in the right eye and became blind very fast, now he’s poor and asking to be box on the ear because of his greed and selfishness.
Both characters were greedy and selfish, so the reader can learn from the characters that greedy and selfish people will get punished. Their lesson is important because the reader greed and selfishness can be rewarded, but with a big punishment.
