The 12th century Sufi book of poetry The Conference of Birds is regarded as one of the masterpieces of Persian literature, but remains largely unknown among western readers. This illustrated version by Caldecott Honor-winning artist Peter Sis promises to help disperse that neglect. In his hands, this poem about thirty birds that go in search of god imparts its subtle spiritual message in vivid and touching ways. Worthy of crossover readership.
