About this title

Synopsis:

WHEN BOMBS BEGIN TO FALL, Ali drowns out the sould of war with a pen.

Like other children living in Baghdad, Ali loves soccer, music and dancing, but most of all, he loves the ancient art of calligraphy. When bombs begin to fall on his city, Ali turns to his pen, writing sweeping and gliding words to the silent music that drowns out the war all around him. Gorgeously illustrated with collage, pencil and charcoal drawings and, of course, exquisite calligraphy, this timely and yet universal story celebrates art and history but also offers young children a way to understand all they see and hear on the news.

Silent Music is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

About the Author:

James Rumford is the author of Sequoyah, which won a 2005 Siebert Honor and the Sugarman Award for American Biography. He lives in Honolulu, Hawaii.
