Tiny Owl joined the fun at Greenwich Book Festival 2017, in the majestic setting of the Royal Observatory, for two events featuring our stories by Rumi!

Storyteller Alia Alzougbi performed Rumi’s fable The Jackal Who Thought he was a Peacock and dressed up in a truly fabulous costume! She also gave a traditional pardekhani performance of Rumi’s The Parrot and the Merchant, complete with a beautiful canvas of Marjan Vafaian’s illustrations. Afterwards children could make their own parrot puppets to take home!

Here you can see a film of these lovely events.
