- Created by Nazli Tahvili
A young boy living in the heart of a busy city spots an eagle swooping overhead, and dreams of what it would be like to fly away and soar over mountains and rivers.
Using a little chalk he draws his own eagle – and then himself – into existence.
The two fly away together, and embark on a wonderful adventure of the boy’s own imagination.
With original screenprinted illustrations by the award-winning Iranian artist Nazli Tahvili, this wordless picture book is a testament to the power of imagination and brings to life every child’s dream of soaring into the sky.
