Over the Rooftops, Under the Moon

Written by JonArno Lawson and illustrated by Nahid Kazemi

Published by Enchanted Lion Books

Publisher's Summary

Feeling both like a bird and yet other to himself, a young bird finds unexpected connection in the eyes of a little girl. is identification carries him into the human world, making him forget his flock for a time. He wonders about the nature of life: What does it mean to be a bird? What does it mean to feel different? What are the possibilities for transcending the self as which you are born? This is a sparse, thought-provoking story about belonging and selfhood.
