9780143124245: The Conference of the Birds

An award-winning author and illustrator offers a beautiful and uplifting adaptation of the beloved Sufi poem
Celebrated children's book creator Peter Sis presents his first book for adults with The Conference of the Birds--a lyrical and richly illustrated story of love, faith, and the beauty of the human journey. Sis's deeply felt version of the classic twelfth-century Persian epic poem tells the story of a flock of birds in search of the true king, Simorgh, who lives on the mountain of Kaf. Drawn from all species, the flock travels through the seven valleys: quest, love, understanding, detachment, unity, amazement, and death. The birds that endure reach the mountain to learn a profound lesson: that Simorgh the king is, in fact, each of them and all of them.
