The first thing I noticed about this book was that it was exceptionally beautiful. The entire layout of the book makes it a magical read which works nicely with the mysticism of the Whirling Dervishes.

It is an interesting story of the great Afghanistan Mystical poet Rumi. He wrote 50,000 rhymed couplets about the love that resides in everyone's soul. He founded the order of the Whirling Dervishes. Beautifully illustrated and colorful.

Rumi is illustrated in a traditional Ottoman style. The biography is interspersed with verses of the poet's works.

I loved the artist's use of turkish-styled illumination to illustrate the pages of this biography. The use of phrases from Rumi's poetry helps to bring this biography alive and to bring the reader closer to the mind of this man. Rumi has long been a favorite of mine, and this book is no disapoinment. It has enough excitement with a simple and catchy enough text, coupled with the stylized illustrations, to capture the interest of young readers. I could read this to a whole-class, small-group, or allow students to read it individually. It could be used as part of a unit on poetry, Islamic history and thought, or comparative religions.… (more)

This book is about Rumi's life and his beautiful poems. This book is very well illustrated. Rumi is considered one of the greatest mystical poets to ever lived. His poetry is very encouraging with spirituality.

This book is about Rumi who was a famous poet in the thirteenth century. It tells of his life and some of his works he created. It was interesting to read becuase I read many of his quotes here and there.
