Tiny Owl


At the heart of Tiny Owl is the message. By publishing beautifully illustrated, deeply philosophical books, we bring stories of hope and peace to a fractured world and build bridges between cultures. With headquarters in the UK, Tiny Owl was initially set up in response to the lack of children’s books that reflected the culture of its co-founder Delaram Ghanimifard. She wanted her sons to experience stories from home and appreciate the beautiful and diverse artistic heritage of Iran. Since 2015, Tiny Owl have published picture books that celebrate the rich literary heritage of Persian culture from Rumi to contemporary poets and are delighted to now bring their books to the United States. At present, there is an urgent need for books which promote greater cultural awareness, understanding, and tolerance and which offer a more positive image and understanding of the Middle East than is usually experienced through the media. Tiny Owl aims to address this in a concrete way by producing books that offer children a kaleidoscope of stories in which to view themselves and others. As Tiny Owl spreads its wings, our aim is to promote under-represented voices and cultures in children’s literature, and to produce beautiful picture books for everyone to enjoy. Through our passion for picture books, Tiny Owl broadens perspectives and introduces artistic and literary traditions from diverse worldviews.
