Activity Overview


Several themes are present in the book. Students can pick a theme to explore, and should support their choice with specific details or events from the text. One prominent theme is “fairness”. The Camel was not being fair to the other animals because they had to work harder to make up for his laziness. The Djinn thought it was fair to give the Camel his hump to punish him for not working.


Example 1:

The Man tells the Dog, Ox, and Horse that they have to do more work because the Camel refuses to do anything. This is not fair.


Example 2:

The Horse asks if it is right for someone to be lazy and not help with work. The Djinn says that it is not fair for someone to act that way, and he ends up giving the Camel his hump because the Camel was not being fair.
