“The Truth About Owls” Translated to Arabic

Art by Jackie Morris

To my surprise and delight, a kind fellow named Salman Zaid wrote to me asking for permission to share his Arabic translation of “The Truth About Owls.” I’m bowled over and honoured to grant that permission.

My father, Oussama El-Mohtar — who has a history of translating my work — also looked the translation over and, in consultation with me, made a number of suggestions and revisions which Salman then graciously incorporated. This makes the whole feel all the more special to me.

I’m just so floored by the thought that this story in particular might now find a new audience among Arabic-speakers. I’m so grateful.
