The Greedy Sparrow: An Armenian tale
Author: Lucine Kasbarian
Illustrator: Maria Zaikina
This book is based on an Armenian folktale, about a sparrow who traded a thorn in his foot for bread, then a sheep, then for a bride, then a flute, only to end up where he started, with a thorn in his foot. The illustrations are catchy, with black borders and images that capture elements of Armenian traditional life and culture.
