The story is one of eight tales in a collection of modern myths and fables invented by Syrian and Kurdish children currently living in Thessaloniki, Greece.Brazilian journalist Debora de Pina Castiglione and her sister, illustrator Beatriz, recorded the stories and worked with designers and translators to create a book now sold in 11 languages throughout Europe. Beatriz, one of five illustrators to contribute to the book, said the sisters wanted to give children and their parents a chance to talk about the war and refugee crises.Over four months, Debora hosted workshops with children aged between 4 and 14 in three camps Vasilika, Lagadikia and Oreokastro and in the city of Thessaloniki, to listen to stories and help children develop ideas.
