Some tales are simple inherently but have a profound wisdom put into it. When these tales come alive with illustrations they make an impact that’s far reaching.
“The Merchant and the Parrot” by Marjan Vafaian is a beautiful story made evocative with the illustrations. While it is being changed a bit and retold, it is a tellingly great book to read. Published by Puffin, an imprint of Penguin Random House, this book is a must buy!
Mah Jahan, a rich merchant woman, collects birds in cages. But when she brings back a gift for one of them, she learns a surprising lesson.
This exquisitely illustrated story is an enchanting fable exploring how hard it is to let go of someone you love and give them freedom. Retold for modern-day readers, this classic tale by Rumi is brought to life by the award-winning illustrator Marjan Vafaian.
