We’re delighted with this wonderful blog celebrating Reza Dalvand’s illustration in Under the Great Plum Tree from brilliant artist Hazel Terry, over on her blog The Art Room Plant! Have a read below.

I love the illustrations for; ‘Under the Great Plum Tree’ published by Tiny Owl 2019, written by Sufiya Ahmed and illustrated by Reza Dalvand, they have a unique composition and have a great richness whilst also a very stylish emptiness, a perfect balance.

The story of the monkey and the crocodile is a fable from the Panchatantra, an ancient Indian collection of animal fables dated to 300 BCE. But it’s a tale from around the world and versions can be found in Kenya, Tanzania, Ghana, China, Japan and the Caribbean.
