Description
A strange beast has been moved into the Merchant's barn-and the villagers are dying of curiosity. What does it look like? The impatient villagers can't wait until morning to find out. This well-loved story is based on a poem by the popular 13th-century Persian poet, Rumi. The author, Mina Javaherbin, also from Iran, has translated and retold this from the original source-both of which can be seen in the back of the book! Eugene Yelchin, Newbery Honor book author/artist of Breaking Stalin's Nose, has based his brilliant illustrations on Persian miniatures.
