Buy The Phoenix of Persia


Happy World Music Day, music lovers! Have you ever put on your headphones, played some whimsical tunes and danced down the street like no-ones watching? We’ve all done it!

Our picture book The Phoenix of Persia not only features a retelling of a legend from ancient Persia, but also an original Iranian musical composition to stream online using a QR code in the book.!

The storybook and music was a collaborative project between Tiny Owl and the Music Department at City, University of London. The music was created in 2018 by a group of Iranian musicians working collaboratively and with storyteller Sally Pomme Clayton. Watch a video below on the process!
