How the Russian Version Was Born

/ 2
The "Mango Tree" is a light and lovely story about a carefree childhood, filled with surprises, hopes and unexpected events.
The book was translated from Arabic into Russian by Dr. Viacheslav Eliseev, founder and CEO of “Job for Arabists”, who accidentally once met Dr. Alyazia Khalifa at the Moscow International Book Fair.

It was here that Dr. Viacheslav Eliseev discovered this wonderful book, upon reading which he decided to translate it into Russian.

The literary editor of the Russian version of the "Mango Tree" became Mr. Igor Sid.

What is This Book All About?

The “Mango Tree” plunges the reader into the 1980s in the UAE, by giving the opportunity to witness the ordinary life of an Emirati family with unchanged values and daily activities – a tribute to traditions, growing fruits and vegetables, loving and caring for family and loved ones.
The book is written in the "silent book" genre (translated into Russian as "quiet book"), which is new to the Russian and Arab world. Such a book is peculiar in that it involves images, thereby promoting the development of the reader’s imagination.

The "silent book" is perfectly perceived by any child in the world from a visual perspective, no matter what language they speak, because the image is a practical alternative to thousands of words.
"I'm happy that this happened! Based on my native Emirati culture and episodes from the everyday life of our society, my book wasn't only translated into Russian but also published by the largest Russian publishing house EKSMO."
Dr. Alyazia Khalifa,
author and illustrator of
the "Mango Tree"
"When I started working on translating this book into Russian, I could not even imagine that the "Mango Tree", coming out of the walls of the publishing house, would take on a life of its own and yield such a plethora of positive emotions to everyone..."
Dr. Vicheslav Eliseev,
founder and CEO of “ Job For Arabists”, author of the book’s literary translation
