The audience not only enjoyed the highly intriguing story, but had also the joy of uncovering the truth that was stored within the parable.

In a unique blend of inspiration and imagination, prolific writer and Nobel Prize nominee, Shlomo Kalo, brings readers of all ages new, fascinating parables for modern day living in a hectic and sometimes forgetful world.

Each one of the twenty-six parables is different and provides something exclusive and powerful. Each parable has its own setting and feel. Each story enriches us spiritually and humanly in its own refreshing way, making us laugh, ponder, or soulfully move our spirits. From The Man and the Tiger, to The Wondrous Princess, to The Sultan and Destiny, to The Blind and the Sighted, this book is crammed with fun, novelty, faith and wisdom on every page.

Read… Absorb… Enjoy!

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

We enjoyed each of the tales very much – they are witty, to the point and address some topical issues. Shlomo Kalo is clearly a talented writer.


The Trousers, a collection of inspiring parables, is a source of such spiritual wisdom simply communicated. While the rich stories describe ancient kingdoms, the common narrative is here and now, our own “kingdom of life”. And the underlying moral easily reveals itself, waiting for us to follow. Very much recommended.


This book is the kind that you will remember, that will inspire you, will make you laugh and think about the meaning of life, but the most important thing is, that you will not read it only once, you will not read it only for yourself. You will read it, for sure to your children and also very likely to your friends.


This is a marvelous collection of stories induced in deep wisdom and divine grace, as all of the other books of the author. The reader gets a chance to have a wide window opened to him into the happenings of human beings of varying spheres of time, place, and culture.


The stories were simple, bright, focused and allegoric. They made me examine my life and my self honestly and to the depth. At the same time they arouse and strengthen that longing for truth and for self fulfillment in me, and provided excellent “tools” for that purpose.
