The kingdom of birds argues about who is to be their king - the cleverest is the winner. This poetic retelling of a traditional tale is a feast for both the eye and the ear. Ward's brief and lyrical retelling works hand in hand with her glowing artwork to charm readers. The pen-and-ink illustrations, coloured with water colours and gouache, take full advantage of the spectacle and beauty of the avian world. Each vibrantly coloured competitor sets forth from a clean white page and often breaks through the finelined borders and margins. Includes an informative appendix that lists all of the birds that appear.
This is a new English translation of a classic of medieval Islamic learning, which illuminates the intellectual debates of its age and speaks vividly to the concerns of our own. It is the most famous work of the Brethren of Purity, a tenth-century esoteric fraternity based in Basra and Baghdad. In this rich allegorical fable the exploited and oppressed animals pursue a case against humanity. They are granted the gift of speech and presented as subjects with views and interests of their own. Over the course of the hearing they rebuke and criticise human weakness, deny man's superiority, and make powerful demands for greater justice and respect for animals. This sophisticated moral allegory combines elements of satire with a thought-provoking thesis on animal welfare. Goodman and McGregor accompany their translation with an introduction and annotations that explore the rich historical and cultural context to the work.
