Единственное произведение Ибн-Туфейля, сохранившееся до наших дней, – это роман "Хайй, сын Якзана" (полное название – "Трактат "Хайй, сын Якзана" относительно тайн восточной мудрости, извлеченных из зерен сущности высказываний главы философов Абу-Али Ибн-Сины имамом, знающим и совершенным философом Абу-Бекром Ибн-Туфейлем"). Это произведение Ибн-Туфейля, повествующее о естественном развитии человека и его мышления, пользовалось большой популярностью не только в эпоху средневековья – широкое признание оно получило также и у европейских читателей нового времени, впервые познакомившихся с ним в конце XVII в. К настоящему времени "Роман о Хайе, сыне Якзана" переведен почти на все европейские языки.

Alessandra D’Angeli is in need of an adventure. Tired of her sixteenth-century life in Italy and homesick for her time-traveling cousin, Cat, who visited her for a magical week and dazzled her with tales of the future, Alessandra is lost. Until the stars hear her plea.
One mystical spell later, Alessandra appears on Cat’s Beverly Hills doorstep five hundred years in the future. Surrounded by confusing gadgets, scary transportation, and scandalous clothing, Less is hesitant to live the life of a twenty-first century teen…until she meets the infuriating—and infuriatingly handsome—surfer Austin Michaels. Austin challenges everything she believes in…and introduces her to a world filled with possibility.
With the clock ticking, Less knows she must live every moment of her modern life while she still can. But how will she return to the drab life of her past when the future is what holds everything she’s come to love?
There is a magical realm that exists alongside the human realm, but it wasn’t always so. The firsts are beings who were created to nurture the land. The world was split into two realms, and the firsts were allowed to redeem themselves. Sadly, the majority continued with their self-indulgent behavior to the point where one of their own, a king, became so obsessed with power, he was secretly banished by the court in hopes his absence would calm the masses. But a spark of madness was ignited and not even the lost king's absence could curtail what he set in motion.
