The Parrot and the Merchant soothes the soul

Indian book blog Fabric of Life wrote a fab review of The Parrot and the Merchant! Read it below!

A short and lovely read, The Parrot and the Merchant is based on a fable by Rumi, a thirteenth century philosopher. An interesting and enchanting one, this fable along with exploring relationships and pain as well as reluctance to let go off something close to the heart, also looks into a crucial aspect- the right to freedom by all living beings. It also brings to the fore the fact that the wise devise ways to meet their ends and that victory is the trophy picked up by the intelligent.

Replete with beautiful illustrations that in themselves are capable of telling the story without the need for a language, ‘The Parrot and the Merchant’ is soothing to both the eyes and the soul.


A good book to read aloud to the little ones and perfect one to rouse interest in reading in the one ready to start reading on their own, this one will also appeal to the child in every adult.
