This book is written and illustrated by Professor Zeki Findikoglu. The author is a Turkish American artist and scholar from a small village in Turkey who is now living in Washington, D.C. Zeki Findikoglu has been creating art work based on Turkish designs and culture for four decades. As one of the last remaining storytellers of traditional Turkish folktales, the author has endeavored to protect and revive this tradition by collecting and recording more than five hundred Turkish folktales and folksongs during his career. Findikoglu has gathered these from his grandmother and his mother, as well as from traveling minstrels and shadow puppet performers. .This book contains two folktales, "Bird of Heaven" and "Siblings", which were told to the author by his mother. The accompanying artworks were created as limited edition prints. Zeki Findikoglu's extensive collection of prints and paintings has been exhibited in many museums and galleries and in several publications.
