The illustrations for Mr. Nightingale are one of a kind. The artist (Kristina) and Ghazal worked carefully on the nuances of every illustration. They wished to capture in color and form the luxuriance of Persian culture and the opulent detail in ornamentation found even in ordinary homes. To produce the desired effect, the artist combined three painting methods. She used colored pencil to enhance the clarity of the drawings. The watercolor technique she used for the color wash has a magical quality that makes the pigments swim as if alive. The final touches of black ink bring prominence to the details and shapes. Ghazal has two aims in creating this book and bringing it to you. The first is to raise funds for reconstructive surgery for eight severely burned children from Iran. This publication and several future books are dedicated to these children’s cause. The second goal is to tell stories of Iranian culture through the eyes of a child. Mr. Nightingale has been translated into several languages: Arabic, Farsi, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish. Mr. Nightingale is available in paperback, tablet reader formats, and in MP3 audio in all the languages above. Thank you for your support.

About the Author:

Ghazal Omid is an award-winning author, commentator, lecturer, and religious scholar. Born and raised in Iran of Kurdish-Persian ancestry, Omid is a Canadian citizen and a U.S legal permanent resident. Drawing from her diverse heritage, Omid has dedicated her life to finding common ground between people of all faiths and backgrounds. A leading commentator on cultural and religious affairs, Omid has published an award-winning memoir, Living In Hell, and has provided hundreds of radio interviews and television appearances, including appearances on leading cable news networks such as Fox News, MSNBC, CNN, and CSPAN. Omid is the founder and executive director of Iran & Its Future.org, a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to promoting intercultural exchange and understanding. Through a variety of arts and education programs, Iran & Its Future.org has distinguished itself as a vital bridge between the Muslim and western world. Under Omid’s stewardship, Iran & Its Future.org has spearheaded a number of groundbreaking cross-cultural initiatives, such as founding an online Iranian and Persian art museum, establishing a dental exchange program, and sponsoring a performance and concert series featuring some of the Iran’s most compelling artists and musicians. In working closely with a wide range of NGOs, individual philanthropists, international organizations and governments, Iran & Its Future.org has been an instrumental force for correcting misrepresentations and misconceptions about the Iranian people while heralding the rich legacy of Persian artistic and democratic achievements. Omid’s latest project, Mr. Nightingale, is a children’s story that tells the tale of a young girl and her best friend and pet bird, Mr. Nightingale. With its moving prose and delightful illustrations, Mr. Nightingale reinforces a timeless message of compassion and generosity. A large portion of the proceeds of the book will be used to provide medical treatment for eight Iranian children who were disfigured in a 2006 fire accident. Over the last six years, these children have been unable to afford surgery and medical care to restore their limbs and faces. Through the hard work of Iran & Its Future.org and its countless supporters and allies, Mr. Nightingale hopes to finally provide the funding and resources necessary to transport the children to the United States where they will receive the care they need.

From Kirkus Reviews:

"In Omid’s debut children’s book, an Iranian girl finds company and healing in her friendship with a fine feathered friend.

Young Maryam is stuck at home while ill. Her cousin, Darius, brings her a bird that she names Mr. Nightingale. The girl and the bird quickly become close, as neither of them is lonely anymore. Maryam eventually returns to school, but when she’s home, she and Mr. Nightingale are inseparable. The bird joins the family at the dining roomtable for lunch and serves as Maryam’s cheerful alarm clock each morning, while Maryam provides Mr. Nightingale with food and fresh water to bathe in. However, when Maryam one day forgets to change his water, the bird doesn’t “seem excited to see her anymore.” Mr. Nightingale stops singing and doesn’t eat the foods that the girl offers him, preferring to eat only rice. He even refuses to bathe in Maryam’s presence and turns his back to her while he’s in his cage. Maryam worries that he might be sick, and the whole family peeks into Maryam’s bedroom door to witness Mr. Nightingale bathing. The moment he realizes they’re looking, he flies out of the bath. Maryam realizes that Mr. Nightingale is angry because she neglected to change his bathwater, and she apologizes. All is forgiven and “the next morning and every morning after,” Mr. Nightingale sings to greet Maryam. Omid’s elegant language makes for a melodious read, perfect for a bedtime story. Munoz’s vibrant illustrations throughout the book provide additional depth to the story and will stir young imaginations.

A heartwarming, inspiring book for adults and children alike. "
