Palestinian Peace Story in Arabic

PBBY was happy to be part of the Peace Story that came to birth in 2010 as a result of Nami Island initiative and successful cooperation with IBBY International and 22 IBBY National sections. We tried to have this lovely book translated to Arabic but could not find a publisher. So we published the Palestinian story which was originally written in Arabic.

The Palestinian story “When the Golden Fish Stopped Dancing” is written by Dima Sehwail and illustrated by Mohammad Ammous.

Sehwail said: I wanted to write a melody about peace from the perception of the ‘right holder’. I wanted the rays of hope through the waves of the sea to reach the children under siege. That, despite the siege, the echo of their voices is heard. From the children’s heart that yearns for joy, adults derive their strength, from the children of Palestine in general and of Gaza in particular, the Writer draws his ideas and the Illustrator his colors

The book publication was supported by an-Nasher. There was an official book launching in cooperation with Ramallah Public Library and the book was distributed to different children libraries.
