The Day We Lost Pet


Excerpt: "This supremely tender book is one that readers will return to again and again, if they can bear it, finding new meaning with each reading and in each new stage of life. Breathtakingly original."

Somewhere a bell is ringing


Excerpt: "The attention to detail in both text and art is evident, and the message of global interconnectedness comes through."

The Blue Pool of Questions


Excerpt: "Deliciously confounding and deeply moving, this book is a work of art in pictures and words for adults and children alike."

Excerpt: "Manasrah’s richly multilayered illustrations mesh gracefully with Abu-Alhayyat's abstract writing in a haunting meditation on one man’s search for belonging and meaning."
