The Parrot and the Merchant

Written by Pippa Goodhart

Illustrated by Marjan Vafaian

Part of the Tales by Rumi Series

The Parrot and the Merchant Synopsis

Mah Jahan is a rich merchant who travels far and wide to trade her goods, and keeps countless colourful birds in cages. When leaving for India, she promises to bring back gifts for all her servants, and for her favourite talking parrot. All that the parrot requests is for her to go to the jungle, greet his friends and ask if they have any messages for him. But when she delivers their message to him, she learns an important lesson about how to treat the ones you love.

The Parrot and the Merchant Press 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
