Synopsis

The Parrot and the Merchant by Rumi

Rumi was a thirteenth century poet, philosopher and mystic whose works have been studied for centuries, and still speak to us today. Some of his songs have been put to music by contemporary Western artists, and now this book brings a wise story about true love into the English language in book form.

Reviews

Tiny Owl also publishes tales by Rumi - great poet, scholar and Sufi mystic, the man who wrote, over seven centuries ago: I am neither of the east nor of the west, no boundaries exist within my breast. Rumi really is one of the world's great authors. We all need to know more about him. Thanks to Tiny Owl, isn't it marvellous that our children are being introduced to him in such a natural and elegant manner? -- David Almond
