Thinker isn’t just an average puppy. He’s a poet. So is his owner, Jace, and together they turn the world around them into verse.

BOY CAN IN THE HEART OF A BUSY CITY, A YOUNG TO FLY OVER ONLY IMAGINE WHAT IT MUST BE LIKE EAGLE MOUNTAINS AND RIVERS, AS FREE AS THE OUT, WHO SWOOPS OVERHEAD. BUT AS IT TURNS NEEDS... HE IMAGINATION MIGHT BE ALL

There’s just one problem: Thinker has to keep quiet in public, and he can’t go to school with Jace. That is, until Pets’ Day. But when Thinker is allowed into the classroom at last, he finds it hard to keep his true identity a secret...

“Eloise Greenfield’s poems in Thinker dance joyfully upon the page as they inspire confidence and authenticity in readers old and young. These are poems about love, belonging, and the rewards of sharing our gifts with the world – all brought to life by the

Delaram Ghanimifard, Co-founder of Tiny Owl Publishing

This year we’ve been incredibly proud to introduce our new series One Story, Many Voices which celebrates well-known fairy tales told from different perspectives from around the world. Our first story Cinderella of the Nile is lovingly retold by Beverley Naidoo. We're also excited to be publishing Thinker: My Puppy Poet and Me by the acclaimed African-American poet Eloise Greenfield about a young boy and his dog. The Drum is another big bang to the year - celebrating how music makes you feel and move. Following on from the success of Little Eli, we’ve added two more wordless picture books to our collection: Chalk Eagle and Caged! Our final highlight for 2018 is Anahita Teymorian’s beautiful picture book There’s Room for Everyone which so poignantly emphasises the need for more kindness in this world.

What is a fable? A story that teaches us something true. our collection of modern fables explore Concepts such as freedom, love, friendship, citizenship, family and happiness, told from unique and varying perspectives.

Thank you, Tiny Owl.

This is how to improve the world, to help dispel clouds of confusion and misunderstanding and to bring us closer together, story by story, image by image, child by child.”

There’s Room for everyone A child grows and discovers the world. As he lies awake at night, he sees there’s enough room in the sky for all the stars and the moon. When he visits the ocean, he sees there is enough room for all the fish, even for the whales. As he grows up, he doesn’t understand why people fight for space. Surely, if we are kinder to one another, there will always be room for everyone? This is a beautiful and profound picture book — a testament of our time and a touching allegory for war and the refugee crisis.

For thousands of years, people have been telling stories...From this rich global heritage, we can find stories that are strikingly similar but also different. Our series ‘One Story, Many Voices’ explores well-known stories told from different and unique perspectives from all over the world.

Cinderella of the Nile Beverley Naidoo Illustrated by Marjan Vafaian

Beautifully retold by the award-winning author Beverley Naidoo, this earliest known version of Cinderella is brought to life for the modern-day reader. Rhodopis is a Greek girl who is sold into slavery by bandits and taken to Egypt. Along the way she becomes friends with the storyteller Aesop and a host of playful animals. Her master gives her a pair of beautiful rose-red slippers, making three other servants jealous. But when Horus the Falcon sweeps in to steal her slipper, Rhodopis has little idea that this act will lead her to the King of Egypt. The first in our ‘One Story, Many Voices’ series, this ancient story of Cinderella finds its echo in fairy tales all over the world. • Hardback • ISBN: 978-1-910328-29-3 • Publication: 14 May 2018 • Price: £12.99 • 40 pp • 275 x 240 mm • Age: 6+ • All Rights Available

Brought up during the apartheid years in South Africa, much of Beverley’s writing reflects crossing boundaries and she has set her novels in South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya and the UK.

It now appears in the Collins Modern Classics list at Harper Collins and is frequently used in schools.


One Story, Many Voices Bijan Manije Ali Seidabadi (trans. Azita Rassi) Illustrated by Marjan Vafaeian

Two neighbouring countries are at war. A young man Bijan finds himself in the neighbouring gardens of the evil King Afrasaib. There he meets Manije and falls madly in love. The couple suffer a wicked fate at the hands of the king but are saved by the redemptive values of truth and bravery. The story of Bijan and Manije is one of the ancient epic stories of Shahnameh (The Book of Kings) by the 10th century poet Ferdowsi. It is an epic story of redemption and love across the divide, reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet. • Hardback • ISBN: 978-1-910328-14-9 • Publication: 1 August 2016 • Price: £12.99 • 24 pp • 250 x 250 mm • Age: 7+ • All Rights Available

The Boy Who Cried Wolf Mahni Tazhibi (trans. Azita Rassi)

Marjan VafaEian Marjan Vafaeian is an award-winning illustrator from Iran. Her illustrations are elaborate, forming a visually rich tapestry, unique in style.

Marjan’s first book with Tiny Owl was The Parrot and the Merchant in 2015, followed by Bijan & Manije in 2016.

This classic fable playfully explores the temptation in us all to exaggerate – and the risks attached! The Boy Who Cried Wolf  is familiar as one of Aesop’s Fables, but its origins go much further back than that, and versions of it are found in cultures throughout the world. In all versions, the message is the same: nobody believes a liar. Mahni Tazhibi’s version is exceptionally illustrated, with the young Iranian artist’s distinctive style evident – a visual treat. • Hardback • ISBN: 978-1-910328-04-0 • Publication: 5 February 2015 • Price: £11.99 • 24 pp • 250 x 250 mm • Age: 3+ • Rights Available (excl.

Tales by Rumi

The Parrot and the Merchant

The Jackal Who Thought He was a Peacock

Retold by Ali Seidabadi (trans. Azita Rassi) Illustrated by Marjan Vafaeian

Mah Jahan, a rich merchant woman, collects and cages beautiful birds but learns that to love someone, you must set it free... Retold for modern-day readers, this classic tale by Rumi is brought to life by the award-winning illustrator Marjan Vafaeian.

Jackal is unhappy with his dull brown and grey fur. He dreams of looking bright and beautiful like the peacocks so that all will admire him. But is being a peacock really as glamorous as it seems? A story about longing, envy, ingenuity and finding out who you really are.

Rumi really is one of the world’s great authors. We all need to know more about him. Thanks to Tiny Owl, isn’t it marvelous that our children are being introduced to him in such a natural and elegant manner? David Almond

Children’s stories that ask philosophical and universal questions are a rare find. This wonderfully quaint and contemporary children’s book is a must, not just for children but for adults with a passion for Rumi’s poetry, those collecting unique books and illustrations for all ages, and libraries and shops caring to have the best stories and narratives on their shelves. Tania Khojasteh

THINKER: MY PUPPY POET AND ME Eloise Greenfield Illustrated by Ehsan Abdollahi

Seven-year-old Jace and his puppy Thinker are poets, putting everything they do into verse, from going to the park and philosophising to playing ball. One day they’ll have the whole world figured out. For now, though, Thinker has to keep quiet in public, and he can’t go to school with Jace – he might recite a poem, and then Jace’s friends will say he’s weird. But when Pets’ Day comes, and Thinker is allowed into the classroom at last, he finds it harder than he expected to keep his rhyming skills a secret.

ELOISE GREENFIELD Eloise Greenfield was born in 1929 in North Carolina and grew up in Washington where she still lives. She is the author of 47 books for children. She has received many awards and honours, including the 2018 Coretta Scott King-Virginia Hamilton Award for Lifetime Achievement and the Award for Excellence in Poetry for Children from the National Council of Teachers of English.
